Thanks, much less error prone for me than the terminal method.

Your are probably right. I skimmed through the discussion and saw
references to the location bar but never really saw where they decided
to change the prefs. Your reference to Apple is right on. As I was
skimming through that wide ranging discussion I was wondering how
anything got done. Then I saw a reference that "upstream" (Jobs in
Apple land) said the changes would not be made and the discussion sort
of petered out.
