	Tks Matt. I can testify that myself because I have already experimented
that way and proved it to work. However, I am still curious to learn how
to correct the issue. The fact that going straight from 2.2.5 into 2.3.2
leads to a failure was the main conclusion expressed in the "Subject" of
my reporting message: that in essence "there is something rotten in the
kingdom of Denmark"... What offending element in the building process is
the culprit and correspondingly is the cause for the corruption is still
quite unclear to me.
