Ah. I was wondering if I should file a bug report. Good to know that it
has already been handled.

I do intend to make a list of enhancement requests, though. Stuff like
having the story editor open to the same place it was instead of always
opening at the beginning of the story so you have to scroll down to
where you were. But I don't know how much time there is before 1.3.5 is
released. Maybe I should hold off if stuff like that can't get in
