Thank you very much for the very clear explanation. I sort of figured
things out late Friday, but left the question "out there" in the hopes
that I would get a more authoritative answer/explanation; my
"solution", while it worked, felt clumsy, so I figured there had to be
a better way that I was missing.

I believe what I had missed understanding the first time through were
the default values for Hash and Pred

And *this* was a big thing that I missed:

and the compiler's error messages were very misleading with respect to
what was wrong.

I will review what I hacked in and re-evaluate based on the knowledge
from your reply.
