  Could you please update to the current release (0.3.3), this seems a bit
of a lost cause to try to debug bugs which may as well have been fixed for
one year (0.1.8 was released Oct 16 2006).
  There have been so many fixes since then it really doesn't make sense
to try to look at the problem without an update first.
