Karl, Robert has a very valid point. Most people search the mailing
list archives before reporting a problem and asking for help. The
reason they do this is to not cover old ground, and it is considered
to be the polite thing to do. However, if everyone used subjects which
had nothing to do with the topic under discussion, it would not be
useful to search the archives, and a very important facet of a mailing
list will have been lost. Please consider Robert's suggestion.
