It was indeed a snafu with the Sunsolve folks, Albert (who works for Sun)
and on this mailing list alerted the Sunsolve folks and the patch should
be back to normal now.

<temporary signature begins>     --inspired by media report on polls

After 9/11 there were lots of polls and media reports regarding how the
majority of Americans would give up some liberty and rights for freedom
or for better security.  Just thought the below quote reminds everyone
that you can not have one without the other --freedom means FREEdom,
no and/if/but/or about it.

 "Those willing to give up a little liberty for a little security
  deserve neither security nor liberty."

<temporary signature ends>       --hoping the majority becomes minority
