I wish people would report bugs/queries to the place requested (where
they will be fielded).  It's unlikely that the world in general knows
more about DM than its author/maintainer (via CCP4 or direct) and I
doubt he would refuse to help.  *Please* cooperate with free(-ish)
software providers in reporting problems to improve programs for
everyone's benefit.  It's not so hard.
