Thank you, that was ludicrously useful.  Although the "debug" level
stopped working after the first call, I am now lying about the importance,
and the "err" messages are showing up usefully.

You helped me figure out another issue as well.  I didn't realize the
variables were persistent from scan to scan, so I couldn't figure out why
many messages were whitelisted when they should be.

My boolean needed to be reset each loop or once a properly whitelisted
message skated through, they ALL did, but I was mucking with things and
restarting so much, it wasn't clear to me what was going on.  Restarting
always seemed to "fix" it, and I wasn't smart enough to realize that
"breaking" it meant a whitelisted message had gone through.

Thanks, you've given me my eyes!

The quotes I used in this thread were just pseudocode approximations of
what I meant, but I'll remember that tip too.

Thanks so much!
