thanks for the reply, Siegi.
perhaps it will be thought of as a defect in my character, but I'm not
really a compiler type of person. in fact, much as I enjoy using Linux,
switching from OS/2 over the last two months has already kind of
stretched me thin. honestly it would take me a day to figure out how to
compile something (I wouldn't even know where to look for source code).
finally, I am using the English jpilot, and while there may be a tip
contained in his remedy that might be of use to me, more than likely I'm
apt to try something that turns out to be stupid.
in any case, I hope I may safely assume that this is either a bug or an
unimplemented feature, and not something wrong with my intelligence or
my installation. perhaps it will be fixed in a future release?
