There has been a follow up for this fix. I'll have to dive into my
archive to see why that was needed.

It was complicated, because there has been a short period in which this
fix was correct. Something like that, I'm speaking from memory.
(Perhaps Tilman's memory is less imperfect.)

I'll try get back to this shortly (in a day or so).

Thanks,


Paul Bolle
