No big deal; MacPorts makes it easy to downgrade.

Ok.  I'm a bit rushed at the moment, so I don't have time to do this
experiment just now, but I'll try to look at it once I get home from work
this evening.

I'm inclined to send the (appropriately redacted) log to you in a private
message, rather than cluttering the list.  Is that OK, or would you prefer
to keep the conversation public?

It may be a couple of days before I have a chance to try this out, but I'll
do my best to get to it promptly.

Thanks again,
