Alan,

OK.

Yes, I consider the failure of profiler and lightning decoding a mystery.

OK, I wouldn't worry about it either.

Hmm...

The difference between the two would be that the plotting out of the
Fkey menu is done with an ADDE routine, and the one out of the 7.7
MCGUI is done with a non-ADDE routine.

OK.

>So, any ideas ?

Not right off.  I will try to crank up the MCGUI from a machine which
has the realtime data mounted to it and see if I can reproduce the failure
here.  If I can, I will develop a fix and install it on waldo.  In either
case, I will let you know the results of my investigation.
