I apologize for that.  I *thought* I had only cut/pasted the e-mail
address and didn't notice that the MUA had carried across the thread
tracking info too.  I won't post anymore on this thread.  (And I apologize
again for this reply on this "wrong" thread but I guess that was
unavoidable now.)

Be advised that I've created bugzilla id #181 regarding the SEGV crash,
which I now realize should have been what to do the first time.
