Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, are very grateful for you and 
AuriStor's quick response to this, as I'm sure are many other members of 
this list.

Also thanks, to the other members of this list with their efforts in 
diagnosing the root cause.

Hopefully we'll be able to try a patched version tomorrow.

Thanks again,
