I so seldom ask questions, that I'm very much out of practice.  I blame this 
on google.  Most time I can find the info long before anyone gets around 
answering my questions.

So I've disable gallery for now. And will upgrade to new version.  Ugh, the 
last time I want is to help some freakazoid get his/her kiddie porn. 

I've just checked and I do have 2.2.4?  I'm uninstalling it now and will to a 
clean re-install.
