​Thanks for input.  From the last time I did mods to the source​, you
helped me with a few changes.  Specifically, v2.1.9 didn't allow lists in
those fields.  You sent me a patch that backported that change from
v2.1.10.  When I did my checking, I saw that I no longer needed to do the
backport so the GUIBase.py file was dropped from needing the modification.
I am trying to make the minimal changes needed.  Looks like I will have to
add the file back.  Not a problem.

​Cool.  I will make the change like you recommend.



Thanks Mark.  You are an awesome help.
