Hi Dan,

any chance it was via a separate userid with some shared permissions, or
somesuch?   I've been running 2 instances for over 10 years -- separate
userids and accounts (personal v. other).  Gives me 2 Notification plugins
in the tray.  One of these days, I may find time see if the tray icons can
be colored, or otherwise distinguished for each instance... :)
