Steve:

Even if I couldn't get a message to them directly, they watch these lists. I 
got a phone call from Amit who made a suggestion where to look and what to look 
for. It seems to do the trick.

Hint for others: Check EVERY option even if it doesn't SEEM related. 
Relationships might become clearer with usage.

Amit is Bcc:ed on this posting to thank him for his effort to track every bug 
report.
