Thanks Tim, for your reply & your efforts on this excellent project. I 
agree, TDE is rock solid on Squeeze and I'm happy to continue using it, 
I just wanted to try TDE on Wheezy. I do not expect support, though will 
willingly accept it, and to those kind people who are willing to respond 
to my posts I am very grateful.

Thanks to all who contribute.
