(Top-posting because my reply is brief.)

The change you suggest to l2hconf.pm did the trick.  I'm embarrassed
to admit that once I thought to look at this file in the previous,
working version, well, this change was there too -- presumably why
it worked! -- but somehow didn't get propagated with other local
modifications to the new version.  Well, fixed now, and maybe I'll
remember next time!

Many thanks!
