Anybody have some test files for Genehunter?

Does anyone have some "sample" input files and their (correct!) output
files for Genehunter? Ideally the input files should be in the LINKAGE
style format, with which I am familiar. Also ideally they will have
been run on Genehunter v1.2 or higher.

I am running Genehunter here (in New Zealand), but am getting suspect
results for the NPL "all" runs and despite a lot of effort, I have not
been able to put this right. It is possible that the installation itself
is at fault; hence why I would like some runs which have worked correctly
elsewhere to establish if the installation is likely to be OK or not and
its just my runs/parameters that are at fault. I know this sounds
bizzare, but I am running out of alternative options.

I have tried to contact the authors, but I have not yet had a reply (they
might be away or busy for all I know).

If you can help, you might want to send the files to me directly (see
the signature, below) and not the group - I can imagine anyone else in
the group will want your test files!

Good hunting to all the gene hunters out there --
