I decided to have a go at installing an independent copy of leafnode 2 using
different locations for the spool and other files. 

This worked well (except for a hiccough caused by the testing client's clock
suddenly losing 4 years!) and I'm now using leafnode2. It seems faster (or
perhaps it's just through having a smaller spool for now). 

Thanks for the warning of not trying to mix the installations. I didn't
realise my old install was from 2004, so it's worked well. I'm looking
forward to the later version being as stable.
