Leonid, thanks for the info. I have 2.8.1rel1 on my PC, the latest
available, and I think it does not work that way. So I guess I'll have to
wait for the next version to be released. But I'm encouraged now, unless
someone else says that it's been that way for a long time. Any idea when
2.8.2 will be released?
I assume that the latest version isn't available anywhere where the public
can run it (or in PC format). I know 2.8.1rel2 is available at
telnet://lynx.bob.bofh.org, but it behaves the same as my 2.8.1rel1 in this
