    Yes you did, but the OPMay have not seen it --read post#4. I had seen your link earlier, but forgot you had posted it. It really shows the similar symptoms.

    I know, that's why I like that one. I haven't run across one yet with better pictures! I never saw the edit on the fourth post, I think you're right that OP missed my link.
