Hello Paul,

Please find the tar file with the files that you requested.

(See attached file: findex.tar.gz)

This was picked up from the svn tree (5421) of This is not yet
in the mainline. To set the
context -this was seen on a Sles9sp2 machine and not a Rhel4U3 machine, as
indicated in the previous
mail. Thanks for looking into this!
