Can you send this a third time? :)  Some of us have pretty hard heads. :)

This explanation helps, the first time I saw your post, I knew the
ProgramInfo::GetBookmark code was doing a sscanf on the value retrieved from
the bookmark column, so I figured the NULL was getting sscanf-ed to 0 so I
couldn't think of the bug you were seeing.

I confirmed it on my machine so the patch is now in CVS.  Thanks.  I also
added code to dbcheck.cpp to convert any existing occurances of the string
"NULL" to literal NULL in the recorded.bookmark column.
