I made a stupid typo in the Subject: line, but changing that would
throw off any threading MUA applications or archivers.  I made the
"leap" from 9.2-STABLE to 9.3-STABLE a few days ago.  At this time
I rebuilt _all_ my ports from source -- I know, I know...  :-)

The idea of using the GENERIC kernel is a valid one and I thank
you for the suggestion.  I will be back in the office to try this
out next week...

I've been doing this since the FreeBSD 2.16 days -- it has just
become habit for me...   :-(
