hi seqfanners,

I apologise for my former lack of accuracy.
I thought I had a handle on a nice problem, but
my enthousiastic ambition was larger than my skill and intelligence.
It took 20 years to be corrected, and I can only hope not to have 
wrong-footed anyone meanwhile.

Congrats to Martin for setting things right.

/(oh, the embarrassment ..)/
