Mmm, after a little fiddling around it seems that the problem has gone
away by version 3.4. I'll send another email if I run across it again
in a current version. The problem *was* the one Ned described.

Okay. It turns out to be real simple, so take a glance at "Huge Viewer

viewer morphs taller for the first four flaps.
PS -- Please don't mistake the tone of my post. As always, it was VERY
