Tim, Darrel, All,

   Hell Yes! The nasty kwrite crash on line-wrap when built with gcc 4.7.0-x 
is _fixed_ when built with gcc 4.7.1!  Damn I hate gcc transitions! To think 
about the time lost because somebody botched the latest and greatest update to 
the underpinnings for all software just boggles the mind. Not just on TDE, but 
globally, just think about the man-hours lost chasing bugs that ended up being 
due to a gcc bug.... Wow! Same thing happened with the update to 4.5.2 during 
the spring of 2011. Lesson - don't put out new versions of anything during the 
spring when gcc is likely to throw you a curve ball...

   Regardless, kwrite is _working fine_! That gets a second *Hell Yes!*
