One thing I should have mentioned:

I am running ices 2.0.1 on OpenBSD 3.7. Just realized I am communicating
with both developers of Ices 2.0.1! :)

Thanks again for your help with this. Your development of Ices2 is
appreciated!

Can I help with testing on OpenBSD? Do you need more info or the ices2.xml?
