I'm a little bit of a down n dirty...meaning I have to throw all kinds of crap around to arrive at truth and facts. Dave looks like he can zero right in. Again....I mean no offense by it.
I also have/or am (among many other things) obsessive compulsive...lose ends bother me to no end. Things need resolved or I go nuts, lol. I'm not sure there is resolution for you here...it may be best to shake it off and be glad y0ou have your money. I certainly must have overlooked many things in your OP...or conveniently cast them aside.
