Both answers mentioned a poor patch job. You are correct. Since I was 
unaware that the patch job had been done, I didn't know what to look 
for. I guess some text was simply pasted into the private.py file and it 
resulted in spaces rather than tabs. The intention was to manually do 
exactly what the automated patch job would supposedly do. I learn 
something new about Python every day.

Things are working again. Thanks.
