The last e-mail I sent was all done on CentOS 6 specifically to prove that my
use on both systems was much more similar.  The PYTHONPATH was the
same on both systems.

No.  That's not how
https://docs.python.org/2/using/cmdline.html#envvar-PYTHONPATH reads
and not what is happening.  PYTHONPATH augments the internal default
path and does not replace it.  If it were the case that PYTHONPATH replaced
the internal
search path, my bzr would also be broken as, a whole lot more would not have
because my PYTHONPATH only pointed to loggerhead and simpletal.  I can still
bzr in this environment.

I'll read it, but if I have to read that to get it to work, why does it work
fine on CentOS 6?
Apparently the procedures used are effective at getting loggerhead to work on
at least
two systems I run.  It's only the CentOS 7 system that won't work.  The only
part of
loggerhead I have trouble on all systems is the start-loggerhead script.

Thanks for sticking with this.
