Ha, that was it!  That does remind me though -  just how long the result
sticks for, obviously not long.  In this case, there was one statement "set
the itemdelimiter to "/"" before I checked the result and that seems to
have destroyed the contents of the result.  I guess the safest thing to do
is grab right after any command that populates it.
