Tony and All,

Thank you very much - I appreciate your exceptionally prompt and
thorough response.  I did as instructed and all is well in Island

No.  All your configuration and training will be retained.
retraining would allow you to take advantage of any improved
tokenization -
but if the results are good as they are, then leaving things alone
is a good

Note that when changing from .81 (or earlier) you should uninstall
then install the new version (whereas for, e.g., 1.0 to 1.0.1 you
can just
install over the top).  This still won't effect your configuration
training, however.
