I'm sure they have. I like mono. I think it has a way to go, but the
achievements so far are impressive (and they got me an MSc, to I owe a
debt of gratitude)

Oh right. I see. Proves the point, really, about how easily I get
confused. If you can write docs that I can understand, you've probably
sorted 100% of the likely user population.

And I will do that, when I get time Sebastien. As I said, it's not a
priority with me right now as the application isn't fully functional yet
(although I have succeeded in successfully negotiating a login (on
Windows) this evening, so I met today's milestone).

Thanks for all your help, Sebastien. When I've done my homework, I'll
get back to the forum if I still can't make it work. I have actually
just posted that upgrading to 1.9.1 didn't solve the problem (although
it changed it). I suspect that reading the FAQ would help me out with
that, so at the first sign of frustration, I'll leave off posting until
I've read the docs.
