And I should have added that I have pilot-link 0.11.7 built from source
and then installed into RedHat 7.3 using checkinstall to create an RPM.
The 0.11.7 source was unpatched in any way over that downloaded from
www.pilot-link.org, HTH.

I will try and pop up on IRC later on today, evening time in the UK I
expect.
