Thanks. That should do exactly what I need (and is a better solution than 
making a change that will break existing functionality). That should have 
occurred to me (at least to try) but I've only ever used tail for 
checking/watching log files, never for piping output through it. 

So that's another thing I've learned today :-). Must be time for bed now, 
before the brain generates an overflow error ;-).
