Although I've already thanked him privately, I'd like to publicly thank 
Ulrich for his quick solution to this problem.  It's very nice (and, in 
my experience, unusual) to find this level of support in _any_ program - 
whether freeware or commercial.

We're lucky to have someone like Ulrich as a fellow Time-Nut!
