Bless you, John Dixon . . . it works !! Why isn't this common knowledge, or have I missed this advice before? I know I did a search of the archives many times before posting my problems with Xcode 4.5.1.

BTW, if anyone ever wants to contrast the civility and helpfulness of this list, they need only post to the Apple iOS developer forum.

Thanks again,
