Very elaborate account of this long standing case.  FYI, this is briefly 
mentioned in the release notes if you care to look into.  Partial sol'n is 
to use hershey` package from Mathsource.  It's partial because you have to 
do a lot of work after getting and installing the package.  I quit trying 
to do it myself after realizing my lack of knowledge about psychology.  
Systat graphics doc has some more info on this one.  Good luck.

BTW, the usenet posts are no longer threaded.  It's extremely inconvenient 
to follow the topics.  I hope this can be corrected soon.
