| Our software company has a nasty habit of fixing problems by putting the
| fix further up the User Library List than the failing program and in the
| early days it really got out of hand.  I've since employed the Dogbert
| method of control on this; involving a plank of 2x4 wood....
| To get a specific product to work for all our users, I had to put it's
| libraries in the System Library List so that our software company couldn't
| 'bump' it out.
| It's messy, but it works.
| Programmers just don't always listen to those of us in the field who have
| to keep the box working for everyone else...

Sad.. but true...

Those who are 3 parts PHB to 1 part experience, sure make it tough on those
of us who have the proportions reversed.
