[thelist] test environment for zen-cart

I downloaded and installed Wireshark but didn't get around to using it.  
Rather I started playing with the database and tables.  This took many 
hours to figure out (maybe Wireshark would have sweetened the pot).  I 
looked through the configuration table and messed with anything that 
looked promising, but nothing looked promising.  However if I deleted 
the configuration table the page would start but not load, failing to 
connect.  This seemed promising - at least it wasn't failing with a 
redirect message.

The configuration table has about 500 lines (id, value, description, 
etc).  I wrote a short script that would import the configuration table, 
all but one line, then give me enough time to test the application.  
Luckily the problem came with the eighth line. 

"Use Search engine friendly URLs" was the culprit  - if I removed that 
line/field from the configuration table (or later learned to turn it off 
in the admintool), the shop loaded perfectly.


BTW - just a thought - would adding the word " - solved" in the subject 
line after the subject be useful and meet list protocol?
