Again thanks for doing this and bearing with me!
I see from the logs you had some fun too :-7

Yes I will send patches individually if I do it again.
It would have been easier for me just to take a little extra time.
As two of the changes were right next to each other the second patch would have to
have included and be dependant on first patch.

It was taking me so long not alone getting faq entry right but also
writing emails. And in composing the faq entry and testing I found
out more about the problem and content of faq entry/emails had to
change more! :-P

fun! :)

James.
