Yep, but it was weird. Your post was in the bin, but mine wasn't. However, when I melded your post with the original thread, my post appeared in the list of posts to meld as well. Somehow, the two posts were being treated as one and ended up in recycling.
Thanks, George, for fixing the short term problem and getting my posts back--I ended up deleting one of the posts anyway, since it was a duplicate, but that's a different matter. I guess our resident Ukiemeister
will have to ID and fix this bug for the long term when he checks this thread in a few hours.
