I will - good idea.  Double check it after the update goes public just
to make sure I didn't forget.

After some thought, I decided to fix it in the script, put a note in
the README, and leave it at that.  For most people using this, they're
on a single-user box where it's not an issue anyway, and for those
people managing multi-user boxes (laptops - are there such creatures?)
:) well, they should be checking that sort of thing anyway.


The search tags and the slackBuild look much better.  Thank you.
