Maybe my memory is failing me in my olde age...nah, can't be!

To be honest, I'm not sure.  We're running the texlive 2008 distribution,
which I installed on our Linux system.  I *thought* I remembered having to
twiddle the hyphenation patterns, but maybe I'm wrong.  And I don't feel
like un-installing it and re-installing it :-).
