First, thanks for the hint about the patch for 3.1.3 & url params.
Worked like a charm. I'm interested in your mention of patch to allow
htsearch to take the search string & format in the command line to avoid
the cost of an additional fork() of the shell when wrapping htsearch. I
searched and searched and could not find such a patch (it wasn't in your
php wrapper class and I looked in the list archives).

If anyone has a patch for htsearch to allow it to take all params in the
command line so it can be executed by a single command *please* send it to
me or the list! Otherwise, it's on my list to do, and I'll post it in a
few weeks when I get to it.
