We are talking well on the bug list, Geert.  What you say is untrue, 
don't spoil the illusion until you know the details and truth of what 
can be lost.

The problem is all of those VARIABLES were different for each person so 
we don't know where the bits and pieces of gnc have gone for everyone.

I think this is an irrevocable error.

If anyone is interested Geert and I are talking about this on the bug 
list in detail.

This will, I think, turn out to be a mistake.
