Swami,

What would you define as the latest version?

Post specific bugs or performance problems on the Basecamp site  
(daniels-mara.updatelog.com) against the specific version you are  
running and you will get a perfectly working version within no time.  
You'll need a user name and password to get onto the site.

Are you aware you're still posting publicly, btw?

Best,

Jerry Daniels
