Larry et-al:

As Stef posted earlier today, the SAV servers are pushing a policy set 
other than the one we initially intended.  As a result, the installation 
script that I wrote is unable to shutdown the running SAV 10 instance 
long enough to patch to version  Annoying, but not exactly 
a true bug in the install script.

Hopefully the policy changes made by Stef earlier will prevent the 
problem from recurring.  If it does continue to be a problem, it is 
possible that some changes in the install script could slipstream the 
patch into this same command that installs SAV some 
experimentation would need to be done.

Please continue to report installation problems as you experience them.  
We are sorry that this release is not going more smoothly.  Please bear 
with us a bit longer.  In my experience, SAV 10 really is much more 
effective than SAV 9, and also contains some performance enhancements 
that make it a far better product than v9.
