Great Bob!

I've checked that on my system, and I'll change it for him when I can.
He's 20 miles away, and over the 'net it's quite complicated and not
too reliable (there are windows machines in the way).

In fact, I'll probably change it here too - I dislike those folders 
which I normally don't access manually, occupying space on each 'ls'.

Again, thanks!
