When you say "didn't work", what do you mean?

It *seems* that these problems are unrelated. I'd suggest -- before
spending any more time on this -- updating to the latest 2.16 release,
which is currently 2.16.4. It shouldn't have any outstanding problems,
and if it does, we'll be in good shape to fix it, too!
