Yes, you have mailed us, but you have never given us anything that we
can reproduce easily. I did however with much extra work find the
problem and I just mailed you a patch about this. I am sorry that
because of Linux Expo and the O'Reilly open source conference we
haven't been able to respond as rapidly as normal during the last few
weeks, but in this case it would have been hard to respond rapidly
even if we would have had better Internet connection.
