Thanks Amy, I added the couple lines of code suggested in that thread.
 We're testing to see if it helps.    We are using the 1.4 version of
the Shib plugin, and we do still get an error from formatting.php when
a new user successfully authenticates.  Hopefully the code in that
discussion thread gets us around the problem.

Thank you.
