Hi, Graham.

I could find no sign of it in the usual directories. Having a search on the 
web, this seems to often be connected with using Spyders, and we haven't got 
one. I also have the same thing happening on two separate machines - it is just 
possible that I may install some test software that stuck it somewhere unusual 
on one of them, but I doubt if it happens on both. So, I am about as sure as I 
can be that that is not it.

I am sure the real clue lies in the fact I can run it under 'su root' but not 
under 'su'. I shall work on that. I have tried all the different 'sudo' options 
to try and get the environments and shells to match.
