If that were possible, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Not right now, sorry. It's just a suspicion I have, but I
haven't broken down the functions enough to be certain (or
to post an isolated test case). But I will look at this
further and let you know about it, once I have more
"evidence". :-)

Thanks for helping, Simon.
