   Yeah, that's what I thought. :7) At least I'm not losing it.

   Well, it looked like my PROD server was hanging out the back end of its time 
slot, but I'm discovering that prioritization may have indeed been working all 
along, since there are some TEST servers in that Class that I didn't expect. 
(Hey, you kids! Who put that there?!)
   Which leads me to kind of a follow-on question: if I have to keep those 
extra clients in that Class, then how do I know the order in which clients in a 
CLass's list will run? And can I change that order to ensure that my most 
important system will get backed up, or do I need to make a separate Class with 
a higher priority?
