Oops.  That is what I was missing.  Sorry.

FWIW, I didn't find what you just said in my travels ...people, email, 
books, sites, specs.  It sure looks like a lot of us missed it.  
Section 3.2 of the FAQ indeed provides the answer, but to a different 
problem.  Section 3.3's error was closer, but the Visa discussion 
didn't apply to me so I moved on.  Perhaps some rephrasing?

Anyway, my thanks.  This one has been driving me nuts.  I made the 
change and it works nicely.
