Bruno, thanks for the report.  As Robby indicated, my CPU cycles are
pretty much maxed at the moment.  My wife and I are packing up our
house this week and moving with our two young'uns.  :-)  In fact, my
intertubes connection will be disrupted any moment now and won't be
re-established for a week or two.

However, once I get back online and in the swing of things, I will
definitely take a close look at this and see if I can update it.  I've
got several other SBo updates that I need to work on as well.

Again, thanks for your input.
