This sounds great.

That's alright. I have got a workaround sufficient to continue
the building and testing but I will not commit/publish the built
applications yet.

When a more tolerable malloc arrives I can rebuild from the beginning and
only then commit to production the resulting, proper and reconfigurable
incarnation. Nice.

Tell me when you might need testing.

Thanks Rich!
