Hi all, 

there is a bug in txfonts.sty, easily reproducible with:
\verb=\precapprox= prints as \ \  $\precapprox$\\
\verb=\nprecapprox= prints as \ \  $\nprecapprox$\\
\verb=\succapprox= prints as \ \  $\succapprox$\\
\verb=\nsuccapprox= prints as \ \  $\nsuccapprox$

If you compare that with the output using amssymb instead of txfonts you
see that precapprox and succapprox are exchanged. The fix is simple:

But whom to send to? Does anyone have an email adress of Young Kyu? And
how to fix that bug on CTAN?
