Hi Julian,

I forwarded your blog comment to the mailing list a while ago but it
wasn't until now that I realised you had already started this thread
regarding the very same bug. Sorry about that, I have been pretty tied
up with producing the 2.74 release - which brings me to another
suggestion. Greenstone 2.74 has just been released, and it is basically
a bug-fix of 2.73. You could upgrade to 2.74 and see if that helps.
While we haven't addressed this WordPlug bug specifically, it might have
dissappeared just as silently as it was introduced. But if, as Richard
suggested, this bug is a conflict between Fiesty and vwWare then
upgrading probably won't help since the problem would lie with them
rather than with Greenstone.

Kind Regards,
Oran Fry.
