I didn't get a response to my observation that your corrected version of my
notebook runs differently in Mathematica 6 (i.e. it works OK) and
Mathematica Player (i.e. it does not work OK). I don't yet know whether this
is because I am trying to do something that Mathematica Player is not
designed to do, or because I have hit upon a problem in Mathematica Player.
