           I have the same problem under about the same version (3.0x) of

4NT,i already discussed this problem with Pierre. And i also have no 
idea what can do about it, since i don't know how to fix it. There is
one thing though, nobody tested it with newer versions of 4NT (4.x),
maybe its a bug in jpsofts command interpreter? We would have to test
to make sure.
