   I kind of expected that -- I was only tweaking you!
   When I played with this utility before, I found it..._awkward_ that
it would only install a subset of all patches, as Nadine mentioned.  I
tried mucking about in the config file to enable some of the "reboot
required" patches on a testing system, but I never got it to work.
   Maybe I'll try again, using it only as a _reporting_ tool to let me
know when I need to log in and apply the patches. (Which is what you do,
   Does anyone have an opinion whether patchcheck or smpatch is better
for this?
