Hi there,

As you may know by now, active work is done in an attempt
to solve any known bugs in MP for a new release.

There are a few bugs in the database that are lacking
information, making it hard to track them down and
so I hope that one of you can remember what the original
bug report was about (the bug database is available
at http://sarovar.org/tracker/?atid=983&group_id=230 ).

  #131: "String problem claimed to be a memory leak"

  This was reported by Denis Roegel. It is quite likely that
  the bug is caused by something in web2c || kpathsea rather
  than in the core of MP, but it cannot be tested without
  actual input file(s).

  #174: "Initialize X_.sc and Y_.sc to something smaller in graph.mp"

  What was that about? There is nothing known about this
  except the title. Both values are initialized to 0 in the
  current version. Ring a bell, anyone?

Greetings, Taco
