It may help Corinna figure out what's happening.  I was hoping that you

I think I'm going to have to invent an email filter that weeds out the phrases
like this:

"(works|operates|runs).*(fine|swell|great|with no problem|perfectly).*\
(on|under|using) *(Linux|UNIX|HPUX|(Cygwin|gnu-win32) B[12][0-9](.[0-9])?)"

I think it will probably cut down on email traffic to this mailing list by
10 - 20%.
