Hello all...

Oops... apologies to one and all... and especially to Wim!

It appears I missed 1.6.3 patch 2
and still had 1.6.3 or 1.6.3 patch 1
installed on machines I was upgrading...

With an upgrade from 1.6.3-2
to 1.7 from Wim's RPM (or one rebuilt from the SRPM),
all is fine... the user doesn't get deleted, etc. etc.

I hang my head in shame...

Thanks once again for a great
piece of software, and again to
Wim for packaging it up so quickly!
