No problem :-) I actually find your english quite good compared to some
of the people here (Miami, FL) :-)

Can you give me the unaligned trap messages? It would help me to hunt

I'd be happy to :-) Let me know what the messages are and I'll hook up
the monitor and keyboard to the Alpha again so I can debug away...
