Thank you Andreas.  I was debating whether to explain exactly this,
to point out that I found Matthew's question inappropriately aggressive,
or both. Now I can do both in a flash.

But I find I would also like to once again say thank you to the
developers, who have given us an amazing piece of software.
I would add that I am impressed by the deep respect they show
each other even when dealing with hard issues.

Just another grateful user for many years.
