I did see that in the comments of the Defaults.py file. I was looking
at that file while talking with the support people. When I brought that
to their attention, their statement was "You can't break it anymore then
it already is". Now I understand why I should place that in mm_cfg.py.
I will get that done pronto.

I'm starting to relate to that, see the tech support comment above :-)

Thank you, I will give that a try.
I will also look at the cpanel forums.
