Sorry about that -- I've been rewriting firewall rules lately, only 
opened port 22 recently -- I thought the worst when permissions all 
over seemed to be stuffed.  Luckily I didn't panic too much, and dd 
the drive to zeroes ;)  Considered it.

Was clean install, because I uninstalled leafnode-1 with 'make uninstall', 
but I think it might have been because I did su into root, not 'su -' or 
open a root terminal to build the package.  Anyway, I deleted everything 
related except the source in disgust at the time, will have another try
