Hi Daniel -

Thanks for your comments. According to the cfgmaker docs, the 
contextengineID *is* what defines the context for the query, and I 
have provided it. The contextname, if not supplied, will be 
'default', which is what I want. So according to the docs as I 
understand them, there's nothing amiss with that aspect of the query.
