Dear Tom,

thanks for your reply, but it didn't change anything; the problem 
remains.  Moving back to version 1.2509 of last May made it go away; but 
this is only a temporary solution. The graphics card is an ATI Radeon 
Mobility X1400.  Next step I guess will be to update the driver!  Any 
other suggestions?
