As I suspected, that must have been due to a last minute change (it worked in the last pre-Release version). Of course it no longer matters (except as another non-compatibility issue) but I thought I should correct my earlier misleading statement. It would be mildly interesting to know the reasons for this change, since WRI does not normally introduce incompatibilities for no reason. Perhaps the old functionality was actually causing some problems. Andrzej Kozlowski
