Gakkk - actually I don't even do that [he said, inviting a heavy
load from above], I always use the same ckt - 2 little 18-22 pF
caps + xtal/resonator.

I have 12-15 different pcbs, and some with an xtal socket for
testing different firmware. Some chips have autobaud detection,
and I have booted them from 1-20 Mhz [w/HS osc] by swapping xtals.
And nairy a glitch. So, these many piclist discussions always amaze
me. Maybe jus lucky, I guess, but after some many pcbs and use of
at least 12 different PICs, you would think the piper would have
caught me by now.
