OK, will do, later today (in sunny Australia)...

Yes, you are right.  I can understand what I am doing now… ;-)  I'm so glad this is
not down to something you or I did, though I was feeling a bit stroppy yesterday… :-)
It is not often I come across a bug in Qt --- and never before in a Qt build.

All the best, Ian W.
