This is a problem that I've been aware of for quite a while, but quite
frankly, I have no idea how to elegantly solve it.  It's happened to 
me on a couple of occasions (under similar circumstances to what Rich
has endured), and after doing basically what you guys all did above,
I was able to get it to run.  

Unless someone has a better idea, perhaps the best solution for now 
is to document this in README?
