OK, this is being added.

This does not appear included in the distribution (i.e. under
mnt/linux) after compilation.  In any case, I cannot reproduce this
error and need a more specific example.

Both eval and eval* work for me, unsure what to do here.

The path variable is not set correctly at present.  Am fixing this in
the next upload.

This is a long standing bug in axiom proper (as opposed to the Debian
package).  To fix this will require some modifications to the file
naming conventions to my understanding.

Thank you so much for this feedback!  Please feel free to use the
Debian bug tracking system to describe any anomalies you see -- this
way I can be sure the issues are not lost. (e.g. 'reportbug').

Take care,
