Ya, I know what you are saying Larry, but to tell you the truth, I tried
to figure out (buy don't have time, several other people have the exact
same error I was getting, "forgot now what it was").  Besides trying to
figure out why it didn't work (CVSWEB said it didn't work basically), I
wanted to learn how to make my own so I am.

I will go back if I get the time and find the reason rlog fails
sometimes. (and if I can remember my original error)
