I just reloaded glom. Even though the two files in the repository seemed the same, except for a "2" in front of vl70 rather than a "1," and even though the "1" was the second file in gslapt (usually indicating newer), it showed "upgrade" when I "reloaded" and the upgraded Glom works. I will continue to try it and report back.
btw, gslapt now (after upgrade) only shows the one Glom file, being the 2vl70 program.
Stretchedthin, thanks a million. If this works as I think it will, it will be a major improvement to my system. Something I've been waiting for for years.
