Dear Bob and Jim,

On january 11, 2001, I received mails from you both, stating more or less
the same (here, I quote Jim):

Thanks for this speedy and very effective assistance.  I indeed got the newer
version which does not go astray when sorting numbers at the beginning of
the first sort key.

BTW, Today, I received a questionnaire from two students of a business
faculty on a dutch university about the use of non-commercial software.
Alas, they sent it in MSWord...
The way you two handled my email is an excellent example of the quality and
effectiveness of world-wide support for non-commercial software; I will,
as an example, tell them how my email was handled.

We will surely continue to be a GNU Patron!

Greetings from the Netherlands, and keep up the good work.
