Oh, okay.

Oh, LOL, sorry.

Right, I am aware of such differences. I just thought that perhaps some
of the Mac Port's code could be somehow imitated in the NS port to solve
this particular problem. But I can completely understand why that may
not be viable without changing a lot of parts in the NS port.

If it's not doable, that's fine. I'm just throwing suggestions out to
see what sticks.
