Below is an adaptation of the patch for caRepeater to let it play too.

I'm unclear on whether caRepeater is considered part of CAS.  It
gets started by the IOC automatically if it's not already running,
so I considered it part of CAS.  Hence, it uses the same environment
variable.  But if it's not considered part of CAS, then I guess it
should get its own environment variable.

Andrew, I don't think you've committed Freddie's patch to the 3.15 tree,
so I'm just posting this additional patch in the hope that it could go
in with Freddie's patch when you get around to it.

Thanks!

Lewis
