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?
