Hi Stefano! Good work!

As in the last version there was again the problem with plotmath.cell 
plotting text outside the box's boundaries.
Demo("nlm") crashed with error 2 first but after the usual memory 
increase everything went well. It would be nice to get a more 
explanatory error message, though.
help.start() worked well.
(G3 Powerbook with System 9.04)

Thanks a lot!
