I must be missing the point of this strategy! I did the above, and the
time printed out correctly in the System.Log. So is the strategy to
progressively move System.Time down the file until the time doesn't
appear anymore in the System.Log? I'm not sure whether or not it's
allowed to issue commands other than in the InitCommands section?
