Thanks for your reply and explanation.
This does not seem to be the problem, though. I got the failure above
on my home system, which is always connected to the internet, and the
failures were repeatable.
Just now, from my laptop (I'm away from home), I upgraded to p12 (from
p10), and ran the test. I got no failure. I then logged into my home
system, and ran the test again, several times. Each time I got this
failure. I then ran the test on both systems at the "same" time. I
got the <rec> error on my home system, but not on my laptop.
Thanks for any suggestions.
