It's absolutely possible that the state of my upgrade didn't take in or
countered your fixes due to my hacking around issues that reared their
heads during the initial 17.04 install i upgraded from.
Now that I'm upgraded it's a little harder to find out, but will see if I
have any backups hanging around from the before upgrade state.

I can hold out a bit longer on the (as far as I can tell), very functional
17.10 install. Will make a call on it nearer the 18.04 time, but might make
the jump to Fedora or the Docker based installs if things aren't looking
good for the state of Ubuntu by then..
Thanks for the taking the time to explain the state of affairs. Appreciate
your work as ever.
