I think he wanted me to delay the upload of the new version (which had 
already been delayed for quite a while) until I had more time to get a better 
changelog entry written.  If another two upstream versions appeared in the 
mean-time which fixed bugs for users then that would just be too bad, they 
would have to wait until they get a nice changelog entry.

Perhaps I should have included the one-line email from the upstream author in 
response to a forwarded bug report saying "I've already fixed that in the 
previous version".

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
