and you will discover any early-life faults whilst still in the

I suffer from dust allergies, Beclomethasone dipropionate nasal spray
kept right next to the keyboard!  Any disturbance to the computer box
raises a cloud of dust and frequently causes a problem.  Even taking
this into account, I'm fairly sure I have suffered from the same
problem the OP described - a small price to pay for the joy of
communing with you lot!
