Hi Jeremy,

After the second installation have you checked to see what /etc/services 
looks like? IIRC, the q commands will look at /etc/services to see which 
port they are supposed to contact. Perhaps your 36001 replaced the 
default of 15001, or more likely there are two entries, and the one for 
36001 comes last, thus making it the default.
