    Thought about that....restarted a fresh shell.  Same same.
At least I know it's supposed to...I can look for it if it is
important enough...but haven't done an exhaustive search yet
either -- I have known about how setting/resetting the bash
vars may undo their 'magic', so I usually know enough to
leave them alone -- but I do forget things occasionally, not
to mention could be some other 3rd party script on startup.

    Or...I broke it when I built it.....

    Thanks much for the confirm!
