Hi Bob,

I am sorry about the huge lag (paper submissions and presentation kept me off
the newsgroups) and I am glad to find out that things worked out all right
for you. There are some questions above I could answer, but as all your
problems are resolved, I guess it is no longer necessary. Let me know if you
need further help...

Best wishes,
