With regards to your message at 03:17 PM 04-27-99 +0200, Albrecht Jacobs.
Where you stated:
We too have this problem. Currently we have 76 machines in build, and there
appears to be several hundred UX with this problem out there. The hardware

I take it he is either not available, or does ot care to tackle this..
