Right, and that didn't work -- probably because there's no "flush"
to force the output.

I'm having other issues with this new system of mine, so I might just
drop the cstream completely.  I'm having strange buffer flushing
issues that didn't exist before.   Clearly I'm going to have to
fix the underlying issue in my main system once I get back.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
