True, and I did try that a few times.    Mostly out of a sense of 
frustration. Laugh

Got it, thanks.  Unfortunately I ran into a bit of a snag with it as well.  
Something in the form of "SIPINFO() not defined."  if I recall correctly.

I found something in an old archive about that happening to someone 
else, and the solution was to use an older version of pcceshell.py or 
ceshell.py that didn't have the SIPINFO referenced.  Of course, that's 
exactly what I am after...

I used both, actually.  Yours was less hassle.  :)

Thanks to you Isr, and to the others who responded so quickly.  
And I apologize for not replying sooner, but I was hoping to be able to 
solve the puzzle myself and I spent too much time poking around in 
various modules.  

Alas, I have reverted to the 2.2 version for now and will just have to 
deal with the menu bar my "fix" created.

At least I can resize the window and have a working interpreter, eh?

Take care...
