	Speaking only for myself, if I don't answer a question it's 
usually because I don't understand the question being asked, or I 
don't know the answer and don't have any clue where to start looking.

	In this particular case, I didn't even understand the description 
of the problem.  I looked at it several times, and just couldn't 
understand what you were trying to do, or what it was that you were 
complaining about.

	You could try again, but I'd encourage you to try to keep the 
description as simple as possible, and make sure that you're clear as 
to just what exactly it is that you're trying to do.
