Thanks. Seems to be working. Both containers start up , run , shutdown 
ok. I'm still working on my install/setup procedures so I don't have a 
3rd or more containers to test yet.

Downgrading to 0.6.3 worked also. I didn't try 0.6.4, no particular 
reason, just 0.6.3 is what comes stock with my OS.

I'm running 0.6.5 for now as long as it works.

Thanks much!
