Hi Arthur,

Sorry about that, I must have missed that in the FAQ.
I've copied the text of the file in below:

I can't honestly remember if it did.  The upgrade was actioned the week 
before Christmas.
We're rapidly heading toward the conclusion that the best plan of action is 
a complete uninstall, reinstall, and test approach. (with associated 
reboots).  We had a test environment which worked fine and one of the 
developers has set-up exactly the same system at home that also works fine. 
I'm inclined to think that something has screw-up during the install.

I'll get one of our guys to test that.

Cheers, Richard
