Thanks for the explanation Monte.  I vaguely remember something about
controlIDs and controlNames but didn't recognise lockUpdates..

If I could figure out how to submit the documentation, I might be willing
to do it for you.  Mark Wieder sent me a link to the docs tool a while back
but so far I've had no success in figuring out how to use it.
