This is good advice, Mark. I don't feel so much brave as fool-hardy.
Generally, I try not to fix ubroken things -- and I had encountered no
problems with the as-issued version 11.5. But these patches cumulate
and take time to download, so I jumped on it to save time later. I
truly hope I don't end up having to re-install.
