Dear Children, I want to all to know that both Jamin and Rick have both been very clever, and have been awarded my special star for being very clever and fixing the problem. They can both wear it until the next dumb question. Many thanks, both. I've cross posted this to the FB3 Beta list - it's not in the FB3 manual under FINDERINFO, and ought to be. Phil.
