So why change tabstop? Is there any reason for that what so ever and I
know that the file you send out didn't have any tabs, but the only
reason what so ever for setting tabstop to 4 I could fingure out what

wrong! And as I interpited this as a reconedation, something in the
enviroment whas wrong.
