Thanks for the info.  It looks like we were both thinking alike.  This is my first foray into sourceforge so I didn't even see the patches section until you mentioned it.  What's the correct etiquette?  Should I wait until your patch is accepted and pull down that trunk, or apply your patch to the current trunk, and add my changes?

Be careful, we already submitted a patch a few weeks ago for the same 
purpose. it's available through the sourceforge patch interface.
