Thanks for the report.  I confess that the script has not been tested with 
Ubuntu.  I wrongly assumed that it would follow Debian.

Could you make the changes to the script you describe, create the report, and 
send me a list of the directories and files you used?  If it's simpler for you, 
email me the modified script as you used it.  I will update the source script to 
include a variable value suitable for Ubuntu.

Thanks again, Roger
