Yeah, I realize that now, and I knew that /usr/ucb was positively ancient.  
I've never messed with my path and /usr/ucb was put up there in the 
front by sysadmin( I'm sure for some reason ), so I'll temporarily 
rearrange my path and ask the apropriate sysadmin people here 
for a clarification

An actual problem with sed( /usr/ucb/sed ) in backuprecover-22.  

I guess my biggest complaint is that is completely dependent
on your path, and that I don't see a real good way of getting around
this problem....
