I can't accept the idea of rebooting my computer into an OS that I 
don't use in order to implement a work around to a problem that could 
be solved in so many other ways (even though I agree with you that 
the root problem is apple's fault,not yours).

I really would like to experiment with OzTeX under X, but until that 
bug is fixed I guess I won't. Sorry for the strong response, but this 
sort of pushes my buttons....OSX and programs that run under X need 
to be self-contained and complete, even if some of the difficulties 
are due to Apple's mistakes.

BTW, I bought the OzTeX 4.0 CD. What do I owe in the way of 
registration fees to become a legal, registered user of the X version?
