My apologies... I confess I misread your original report by skimming over
the meaty part of it and reading what I expected to see rather than what
you in fact wrote.

Ah, gotcha!  Glad you found an external to Rabbit cause for the weird

When Matthias pointed out my carelessness in misreading your original
message I made a note to come back to your report and try to reproduce your
observations, but knew I wouldn't be able to get to it for a couple of

The behavior you were describing was indeed surprising to us (when I became
less daft and actually grasped what you were saying), as it was to you.

Again, my apologies for my sloppiness and adding confusion to the situation.

Best regards,
