It's odd that I can reproduce it on three completely different systems. The only thing in common between the three is the base ( installation media. I think I will try downloading it again and seeing if I can repeat it. I'm surprised that I've been able to repeat it consistently (every one has always done this) yet I haven't been able to find any postings of anyone else experiencing the problem.
