Gack!  I bet that you're not running X11R6.  The fix may or may not be
trivial.  I will check it out under open(ha!)windows.

You might notice that the e-mail address here is

I ran a poll when setting up the domain and stat was the departmental
choice (we're mostly American or Canadian trained).  I'm afraid that
we've accepted the fact that the pan-global English is the American
version not the British one.  No point in being provincial :-).

Thanks for the info about data sets!  I've got several hundred
megabytes of data which I've accumulated over the years including many
of the classics.  I'll have a dig through them for the diamonds ...
