I'm still on 2.6.1 though I have the current 2.7 beta.  Yes I know I need to 
upgrade - and I shall be doing so as I need dual binary support.  Your stack 
works great in the latest beta, but simply fails in 2.6.1 - even when saved 
as a legacy stack.  So I'm assuming the goodies are in the 2.7 + IDE.  Maybe 
I should wait until I get 2.7+

Thanks muchly though!!
