    Yes I have that bug in 1.1.3 on at least one of my machines. I haven't
    chased it down yet. My appologies but ermmm 1.1.3 was by no means
    gaurenteed to work and getting this sort of feedback from users was
    exactly *why* we released so t it. So thanks very much and we'll look into
    it. Hopefully 1.1.4 will print on RH 8 "out of the box".

    I'll see if there is a work around in the meantime coz apart from that bug
    and another bad bug with justified paragraphs 1.1.3 is rather usable.
