Quite possibly -- is there something it *should* be doing? (I don't mean to suggest
I particularly think there's not, honest question.) I had figured it was a minor
oversight and the warning was sort of a "spurious" one, though I'm admittedly well
out of my depth here, so perhaps I shouldn't be doing such things (though I suppose
it's one way to learn).
