Hi Donn.
Thanx for your answer.

I haven't try this, coz I got around the problem with a nasty, but working
hack :o)
I just made a sh script, that started the program, this works fine :o)

Isn't Bourne shell, the same as sh?
It works for me to do it, in the standard shelle (sh)...

Anyways... It works for now, so I'll try it out later :o)
Thank you very much for you suggestions
