Am using Mathematica under WinXP Home, and am testing the 
function below.  Taken from a book on Mathematica 4.0, the example says: 

    FindRoot[Print[x]; Sin[x] == x/2, {x, 10}]

returns the evolving solutions before terminating with a solution.

However, when I run this, it doesn't display evolving solutions.  Is 
this a difference between v4.0 and 5.0, or is the above command wrong 
(although taken verbatim from the book)?
