I knew it was produced by the same process, or I wouldn't have shared

But you couldn't have known that.

Thanks... I thought I was posting about separate issues and would
annoy people who were only interested in one of the issues if I put
them both in the same thread.  I guess all posts re: the same script
should go in one thread, even if the questions posed may be unrelated
and may be separate issues.  There are grey areas.
