Hi Ryan,

I'm seeing something a little weird here, but it's not what you're
describing.  I'll probe a little more to see if we can figure out what's
going on.

Can you show us what you mean by 'passing up "Hint"'?  Not sure I
understand what you mean yet.

A copy-and-paste of the session you're doing to test the program will be
helpful, as well as some discussion on what you expected to see vs. what
you're actually seeing.

Good luck to you.
