Although this doesn't answer the question posed, it's one bit of information to hopefully help the list eliminate from consideration a possible source of the problem. I ran the test problem uneventfully on my machine using the Mathematica front end. I'm running Mathematica 4.1 on Gnu/Linux, using the Gnome/Helix desktop environment, and the RedHat 6.1 Linux distribution. HTH, Raul Martinez "Yasvir A.
