Hmmm, at one time I had used spost as a postproc, not for the reasons
in the FAQ (06.04 Fixing "post: problem initializing server; [BHST] no
servers available") but because post was crashing. It doesn't appear
I'm doing that any more though. I wonder if these are related...

Thanks, Ken, for making these changes. And thanks to Peter for testing
and Doug for looking over the changes. I appreciate the effort!
