Okay, what you need to do is "Remove" the package like normal... then Re-Install it like normal. Then the new version has the fixes to take care of the problems you're having. You can then remove it to completely remove it, or you can keep using it.
My only problem is that this is starting to move a direction in which I don't seem to have anymore say so in the project. I'm not saying anything bad, and I'm not about to put mcrane down, he's a great guy and has helped me a great deal with stuff, but I just wish the project I started, and wrote part of... I had some control over.
