Yup.. it is there..

Wait a sec... if I am reading that correctly, then existing lists would 
have been created using the standard templates which did not, obviously, 
have the htdig patch.  Newly created lists would be created against the 
now-patched htdig templates, and they should work properly.  Existing 
lists would have to have their templates patched accordingly.

Is that right?

If so, then it is likely that my installation IS working as expected.  I 
will have to delete my test list and recreate it, then run some tests 
and observe the results.

I'll let you know if I have any troubles there.

Thanks for your help!!
