Lynton, Ooops, sorry to say my report of the bug being fixed seems premature. Although the bug that we thought showed the essential problem was fixed, I just got this report from Dennis: Date: Fri, 31 Aug 2012 11:05:34 -0600 From: Dennis Heimbigner <address@hidden> To: Russ Rew <address@hidden> Subject: vlen bug is still there... I found the very original file Lynton sent and ran it, and it still fails. So the original bug is still not fixed. =Dennis I'll talk to Dennis more about this next week ... --Russ > New Client Reply: Problems with CDL/vlen example > > thanks Russ, > this is great news.
