I cannot say for sure … among the items in my database's inbox was one that has 
been sitting there for a couple of years but which I had forgotten about, by 
virtue of its association to LMcC and it was seldom that, even on those 
occasions when I did log in "as" LMcC, I paid attention to the inbox.

Therefore I cannot recall whether the item was originally created as a demo 
item in the course of one of the database upgrades, and whether I might have 
simply altered its content, or whether it was an item that I had personally as 
LcMc or myself created, and which became "taken over" by gm-dbo.

The thing that made me suspicious was its acquiring an fkey to a patient.

But as it's a one-off observation I'll simply try to notice if I see this again.
