Well I squeezed it it, but now there may not be any blank line between the
last line with a field (user (A)gent) and the fixed "Select capital
letter..." instruction line.  I am not sure that I like it or that it does
the right thing.  It is only available in "Advanced" user mode.
Actually the Options Screen isn't only running out of space, but it is
also running out of L)etters.  I use ^A for "^A)ssume charset if unknown",
it seemed better than yet another non-Ctrl key that doesn't have any
obvious connection with the name of the field it selects.

Ok, it was something else than I thought...  I have changed it, it should
be in the next update which should be 2.7.1ac-0.76.

Now I guess you have to find someone to compile this for you for 386...
