    Gerfried, first of all, my name is Michel. My apologies for bothering you with
    two copies of my post - replying to both the sender and list is policy on the
    vast majority of lists I'm subscribed to, so most of the time I just hit
    'Reply All' and forget. Just like you wrote 'Michael' and forgot.

    I almost expected that, but I can't think of anything, any ideas? I know this
    is OT...

    Thanks, my work box is running Debian testing and I apt-get installed xblast.
    My colleague's box is running SuSE 7.2 and he installed the SuSE package (he
    didn't know until I told him about xblast though ;). Interestingly, both show
    the exact same problem, which can be seen in my bug report.

    Anyway, I'm glad it works for you, and I'm sure it would be a good means to
    get people's attention.
