Errr... that's not "3.1.36" you wrote in your bug report.  It's "3.1.31-6"
or the 6th build of .31 ... I think.

But you're posilutely right.  Ouchie!  I would have never run into that --
more likely other things -- I have a Ricoh bridge.  (Hardly surprising
as I've a Ricoh laptop)

As we get more lures towards buying new toys for our laptops the disparity
between "because they work" and "but the mappings/modules are only in the 
new code" will just get worse.  We really have to make them get this nailed
down before woody is sealed in metel-oxides and plastic.
