I'm getting closer.  Now I'm getting the following error when trying to
connect via the client.

[snip]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\share\python\uhg\uht\tsd\ClearCase\xmlrpc_client.py", line 7,
  in ?
    print server.runCmd("dir")
  File "C:\Python23\lib\xmlrpclib.py", line 1021, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "C:\Python23\lib\xmlrpclib.py", line 1308, in __request
    verbose=self.__verbose
TypeError: request() got an unexpected keyword argument 'verbose'
[/snip]

I've my code.  Any ideas.
