 Rang a vague bell with me, although I have no wish to develop RSI

 Back in December '05 somebody asked the same question.  Google
linked to my posting, but came up with an entirely different mail.
Fortunately, the version in its cache is still there:

(careful with the url, it might get split across lines).  It points

patch needed adaptation for pure64 - I don't know if they have
updated their patch(es) since then.
