Thanks Michael ... will there be a 1.0.7_02 anytime soon?

If you're familiar with building RPMs from source tarballs on
Linux, the problem is that it fetches the tarball from the
original source (e.g., your machine) and builds it from that,
so I am not allowed any input to that process, i.e. to alter
the t/xblob.t script.  What it downloads from you has to work
right  :-)
