Thanks, I'll look into it - the Oracle Solaris 11.4 VM 'template' for running
inside their Virtualbox software sux. It hung a few times (once when trying to
watch a YouTube video, the other when adding a Gmail account to Thunderbird
mail client).

I'm testing Ubuntu on the same system, hope to see if the platform or the
Solaris install has isdues.
