Hi David,

Let me start by thanking you for your contribution! Welcome!

I saw Mark addressed the memory problems you had. That's good. I
experience the PRINT.BACKQUOTE.RANDOM and some other random printing
issues too. This is really something to look into. However, well,
they're random...

Unfortunately yesterday evening was very hectic, so I didn't get to
have a look at your changes. I'll look at them at my earliest
convenience; no later than the end of this week, hopefully tonight.

Thanks again for your contribution!
