Hi Kris,

Thanks for the quick answer. Unfortunately, I have very little  
experience with xy-pic. Stupid question: where are the .xyc files?  
There do not seem to be any.

I will try to extract a smaller example from the sources and send  
around it (or maybe the solution, if I happen to stumble across one).
