I was about to post my first question on SO after much searching, but fortunately, just before doing so, I noticed an existing question about an issue that is very similar to what I am seeing. However, there is no really good answer to that question -- nothing I haven't tried already. (I sympathize with the frustration the questioner seems to have with some of the answers he has been given.) I don't have an answer myself, but I do have a little more information from my own experience that seems relevant -- maybe it will help someone to resolve the problem completely. Or maybe I can help clarify the original question.
Neither a new question, nor an answer to the existing question seem appropriate here. And, since I'm new, I can't post a comment. I tried searching meta-so for instructions on how to proceed. This was the closest thing I could find. But by my understanding, the situation described there does not match my current situation terribly well.
How should I proceed, if at all?
