(Note to anyone following this discussion: no, you didn't miss a  
release -- 0.991 isn't out yet.)

Could you try another test for me? I'm attaching a small file "gr- 
test.tex". Please process this from the Terminal in two ways, and  
send me the resulting log and PDF files (off-list, I suggest, to  
reduce clutter). I'd like to confirm whether you're seeing the same  
results as I do with this example.

	xelatex -jobname=gr-test-xelatex gr-test

	xetex -ini -jobname=gr-test-ini gr-test
