Hi Peter,

Yes, launching from a shell, and everything seems fine.  Just a nagging 
little thing I'd like to track down.

Probably a "Jessie" install issue, and definitely not something 
introduced with latest releases from SESI.  Even h13, h14, & h15 
installations cause the error now.

Cheers,

Floyd
