I have no solution for you. I decided to send that reply instead of
spending time searching for a solution.

That's fine, (almost) exactly what I do each time. But since you didn't
mention that in your original message I had to assume it hadn't
happened. I'm sure you noticed that quite a few people use this list as
a first resort instead of trying to learn how to find solutions
themselves. So, great that you've done it, but please mention it in the
request - it informs me (in this case) that there's no point me
searching for a solution. Clearly you've gone beyond mt basic knowledge
and know how and where to look.

Odd, have you filed a bug against that behaviour?
