It may be useful to point out technical difficulties:
I don't have such an earlier posting in my texhax box
(to which a filter directs mails with `[texhax]' in the subject).
This may be not due to the heap, you rather may have

Similar matter: here and below I wonder what is your recent
text and which is from an earlier posting.

Thanks for your really expert hints -- Uwe.
