Thank goodness!  I thought I was going insane.  

Since I had never seen the examples work, I didn't have any reference
point.  I spent the day tinkering with my environment (and even built a
new workstation), trying to figure out why my setup didn't work.  I had
just broken out gdb and started to step through the code when I got your
mail.  I'm quite relieved to find out that it wasn't me.

Added the three lines, and now the example appears to work.
