  Yes... thank you for your kind words, Charles.
  It is always better to know of being not alone -- especially if it
  comes to "having problems..."

  Cscope ? Dont know of this...
  Where can I get it, what does it cost and what tax I have to pay for
  it ? ;)

  In other words: Do you have a link for me from where I can download the
  source ? Or is it a commonly available thing (so I can find it by
  just doing some digging at freshmeat's or sourceforge's ...)

  Fingers crossed...I know of one other list which the same mystique

  Open Source and closed minds there.....

  No character is too big for this.

  Unfortunately "audio mail" isn't supported yet without a huge effort
  of data...otherwise I would shout it out loud !

  Yes, with a current cvs snapshot I only get "core dumped" as well as on
  my gcc-2.95.3 based system as on my gcc-3.2.2. based system.

  They said to me, gcc-3.2.2. is buggy (that may be the reason why I can
  compile the whole KDE suite with gcc-3.2.2.  without problems...which does
  not work with the gcc-2.95.3...sigh) so my further bug reports will
  be based only on the gcc-2.95.3. system.

  What compiler do you use ?

  Keep Hacking!
