After posting this I realised the code had a dependence on a separate
debugging module. I've commented-out all such references and tested it
in isolation from other code. Everything behaved as it should so if
you download it you should find it just works. The only dependence is
on Python (i.e. Python 2.x; I gather 3.x needs print statements and
maybe other stuff to be changed). Any issues, feel free to post them
