Hi Brad,

   Thanks for the quick response, I've been trying to do what you are
   suggesting but I didn't have any luck. It's always something
   missing. But at least I'm on the right path... :D. I'll try to get
   the latest CVS version and do what you suggest.

   Please send any new suggestion that comes to your mind.
