Great!  You're welcome.

We'll do a minor release when "enough" bugs have been fixed to justify
it, or if it's been "too long", and when we have the energy to get a
release together. (Does that nail it down for you? :-)

Usually after a major release (X.Y.0) a few serious bugs like what
you found show up, as well as more minor ones.   I want to wait a
little longer to see if any more major bugs decide to come out of
the woodwork.

Are you a native Southerner? I am, and I always make a point of
saying (but usually not writing) "y'all".[1]  Just curious. :-)


[1] Of course, I use the word correctly, not like characters
on television. "Y'all" should only be used when addressing
multiple people. It's the equivalent of the Yankee "you guys".
