Grr.

Before doing anything, I tried to reproduce the problem a few more
times to get a better idea of how frequent it was.  Last night, I
was getting about 6-7 errors for every 10 attempts.  This morning,
I went through 50 attempts without an error.  I even unpacked that
image of the files involved & tried there, with no luck..

Not Reproduceable.


Unless others are reporting similiar issues, this was probably
operator error.  Sorry to waste your time.  =/
