No worries.

I am sure that you got it from me somehow.  I guess what I was looking
for was a verification that there is not a lingering problem in a
current ldm-mcidas-pqact.conf file.  The error was mine, but it was
"way back when".  I really should have spotted the problem before I
did, so I ended up doing more work than seemed necessary. I did,
however, find out some interesting things about your setup.  Also, the
errors in pqact were real, so those actions were most likely not
working as you wanted.  (Looking for positives in the massive wheel
spinning :-)

Your stockpile of images should be back uptodate sometime tomorrow (or
the day after tomorrow for the global Mollweide images).

Anyway, all's well that ends well.
