(...have I ever mentioned how much I hate this kind of "attribution
line"? Makes life so much harder for those of us who are in the habit of
re-wrapping each message before it gets sent...)

What "newest version" are you talking about"?

0.4.9? That's the latest released version, yes, but it's also truly
ancient and is not supported here.

dev-SVN-r7898 or earlier? That's not a recent enough development
version, the fix was committed to the SVN tree in r7899 at 8:24 AM
yesterday. (When a developer replies to a problem report with "fixed",
he means that "a fix for this problem has now been committed to the SVN
source tree".)

Any other kind of version number? You're almost certainly using a
packaged version, provided by some third party; such packages are not
supported here, and naturally the Very Latest bugfixes made by the
developers do not immediately go into such packages.

(Also, please learn to snip - specifically, .sigs.)

       The Wanderer just woke up and so may be a little grouchy

Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
