Sorry, didn't notice your question earlier... yes, I will upgrade at
least to 22.3 (that is the latest version that our IT group has
installed internally). But I have quite a bit of customization, which
takes a while to transition, so it will probably be some time before I
can switch versions.  So, if I notice the bug before that happens,
maybe I can figure out what triggers it -- that's what I meant.
