Done, but I think my removal of ~/News/marks <snipped above> is still a
problem. Now on startup I get bootstrapping... and it is creating a huge
archive in the above directory which is redundant on this box.  Do I
have to have that occur?

I didn't let the process complete. CPU up to 100% and it would have been
15 to 20 minutes of that before it became usable again and only then
could I really test if your above suggestion would work.

Thanks for that and anything else you can provide.
