Then obviously, you must have been talking to them at the exact same time I was
talking to them, because they hadn't heard of it when I mentioned it, either.

Surely they wouldn't have fibbed about that.

(My "favorite" is still when it crashes while you're on a page with a referenced
graphic. I've seen Frame reach into the -reference- file, in another directory,
and obliterate the file. I'm not kidding. Frame has assured me, of course, that
this is quite impossible, even though it happened to me half a dozen or so times
last spring.)
