None that I know of, but I'm more concerned about the

I am more confused than ever; it seems that WinEdt, out of the box,
uses MikTeX in preference to fpTeX, and I saw no installation

Thus there _is_ no -src option specified, and the DviType/Grep
combination appears to confirm that there are no specials in 
the DVI file.  So what the h@ll is persuading DVIPS that I have
