        Awh shucks!!  It was a four line tweak and I should of known
it's too simple.  It's also blocking alignment carryover in a number
of circumstances where we don't want it blocked.

        I got rid of the four lines, and re-zipped, so anybody who
got the 13-Dec-96 mods zip before reading this message, get it again.
That glitch has been there for at least 8 months, so it can wait a
bit more to be dealt with properly, and I want to get all the other
neat stuff I did this week field tested.
