Hi Vitalie,

Thanks a lot! I updated and I now see *both* buffers in debug mode.
The point is in 'grid-stuff.R' and M-N etc. works :-)

For some reason, I guess I am a good 'test user' ... I run into many
bugs with all kinds of software (not sure if this is :-) or :-( ).

The mails with screenshots were rejected by the list's 'moderator' due
to their size (not sure if this is a bug -- screenshots can be very
helpful as we saw).

Thanks again for helping on this (and also so quickly).
