Regarding the Ariandne file include report, we just sent mail to the 
author of the original report (Fidel Costa) to ask for clarification, 
just to be certain.

But it occurred to me that the problem may have been a site-specific 
configuration issue.  The 2.4 distribution comes with two separate 
include files:  "ariadne.inc-unix" and "ariadne.inc-win".  The 
administrator needs to manually rename one of these to "ariadne.inc", as 
the installation process is largely manual.  The installation RTF doc 
explains this in a generic way, so it may not be clear to some 
(especially those that don't read the docs!).  You would think that the 
system would barf if the include file was missing (i.e., not properly 
renamed), but perhaps not.

We'll be deleting our Alert on this, unless Fidel Costa has some 
interesting additional info.
