Excellent! Good to know I'm not off my rocker. :)

Also, while I'm replying up a storm here, I have a quick printer
managment bug. When setting up the first printer, it's alias name is
always set to "New Printer" and it can't be changed. The second
printer added can be renamed, and removing the first printer and
recreating allows it to be renamed.
