Sorry for the quick reply but I am just leaving work....  I just
downloaded my tar ball and unwrapped it on my Win2K laptop,
I edited the TableList.py file and pressed F5 (SciTE run buffer)

can you give me some more info (python version, command used to test
I'll take a look when I get home (2+ hours from now!)
