Okay, I'm guessing the reason I'm having more problems is I'm running Feisty and not
Gutsy.  David is running Gutsy.  So apparently I should be doing my testing with a Gutsy
server and life will be much better.  

I don't dare upgrade our main server to Gutsy until school is out, but I'll use a
Virtual Machine in the meantime to test.
