Thank you ... I noticed the same behaviour as Andrew when using xvattr
... it turned out to be easy to fix  (it showed up as 0%, setting it
to 50% sets the attribute back from -1000 to 0).

Thank you :-)

The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If you can't
ignore it, top it. If you can't top it, laugh at it. If you can't laugh
at it, it's probably deserved.
