Wow, sorry, I said that entirely wrong.  I meant that in my recollection, when
I need to rebase, I get messages about "can't create fork".  But that's not
what I said at all.

So this is an entirely different error, but I still rebased, first thing, just
as a SWAG.

I got the emacs from your site, thanks, and I'll keep an eye on it and see how
it goes.

I'll keep you posted.
