That's called the simple pleasures of live ;-)

Yep, I've got these kind of trouble when I access a Unix machine from Windows
using VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/). But there's always something
dangerous about a "it worked then, so why shouldn't it work now" - attitude.
Lasse, if you want to have an example, please contact me, I don't want to bore
this list with a short story.

Yep, and I don't want his job. My pl-releases were only published because I
thought there was a need, since Sec's been so quiet lately due to illness and
work. IMHO the governments should hire Open Source Programmers just to make
this world a little better ;-). Maybe we can establish something like the Linus
Torvalds / Alan Cox cooperation here :-). 

BTW: I prefer "SvOlli" to "Sven" as Sec prefers "Sec" to "Stefan".
