    Thanks so much for your rapid reply. One would hope to get such
    excellent service from paid, comerical software! An excellent example
    of open source software at it's finest! More below..

    Great. That is clear enough. I suppose the practice of using 'script'
    to capture the output of the patch, make and install process and
    looking it over for errors will be sufficient to satisfy my anal
    retentive tendancies ;-)

    Wow. You guys are great. The security notifications in general are very
    clear. As I said, I pretty much followed the instructions by rote,
    never having run a patch on my source before, and it worked just fine.

    Wonderful. I assume I can find the PID by running ps -x as well,
    correct? It would be the process ID for /usr/sbin/sshd...

    Thanks again for your diligence.
