BesselJZeros problem/bug?

I have a very simple notebook with just the following two cells:

<< NumericalMath`BesselZeros`

Having run the first cell to load the add-on package, running the second
cell is supposed to return a list containing the value of the 3rd zero
of the Bessel function J0. However, for me it just never returns at all.
Is this a bug? and is there a work-around?

There are no problems finding the 1st and 2nd zeros of J0, nor any of
the zeros of J1, J2, etc. I am running Mathematica on a PC with
Windows 95.

Any ideas?
