You originally had a technical question, which was answered swiftly by
several people, and correctly.  This exaggerated angst about how you phrased
the question is thus baffling:  you got your answers on the first try.  IOW,
move on <wink>.  WRT your original msg, the parenthetical comment you're
still asking about wasn't needed -- rather than search for a way to rephrase
it, consider what the msg would have been like had it not been there at all.
You would have gotten the same answers at the same speed, or, IOW, the
comment added no information.  The start of the msg had already explained
the symptom adequately.
