I wasn't complaining about that. I was explaining where I was in the 
process. The complaint was the short field (see below) and the back 
button issue (also below)

Is this another CVS issue? I ran checkout at 1am EDT today. Was your 
checkin before or after that?

No, no, no, there's a "back" on the form. It submits a form to 
admin/install/index.php. That does not repopulate the entry field.

any consistency out of this. Sometimes it complains about the 644 and 
sometimes it doesn't.
