Hi everyone,

well, I'm still stuck with this.
I guess this isn't the right place, but I am eager to get an offer if
anyone thinks they are capable of tweaking scriptaculous (or fixing
this in whatever way). Where can i find the prototype/scriptaculous
cracks that will dig into this for some $$?

Thanks, Martin
