Should this be in the FAQ page?

One Fix for this problem (at least)

The answer appears to be to add this line to the .htaccess file in the root directory of the specific Joomla installation:

The author of this fix is to be found here:

Just don't forget to comment out this line after changing one's site configuration ...

hope that this helps others. John K
