as noted previously, i don't use any installer... i pull trunk from the 
repository and compile it as per my previously posted command lines...

in retrospect, i guess i should have filed a bug report and then amended it when 
we discovered that the turbopoweriprodsgn was necessary for it to appear 
correctly... perhaps there should be some checking code to see if the 
turbopoweriprodsgn routines are available and if not, then render the popups as 
desired in the old way with a border and background color with or without the 
html capabilities...

TBH, i don't know... all i know is that i was not able to immediately recognize 
the popup for what it was...
