Ok, I see what you're getting at. So for you bugs are the difference
between what you intended and what you have. Fair enough. Would be
nice to have a category of feature request that recognises fixing
flawed behaviour though.

Don't get me wrong, I would hate to have had to wait for multirec until
someone had figured out the complete integration.

I'll try to shut up and stop wasting your time now. :-)
