Aaaarrrgghhh!!! The diagnosis of the problem was, as usual, trivial.  It 
was all down to my overwhelming stupidity.  I put together the main 
title by pasting together various bits --- and FORGOT to include the 
very first bit, which was the first line of the two-line title.  (Smoke 
comes out of ears!!!)

Took me hours, with accompanying hair loss, to track down that 
particular piece of stupidity.  Tried everything except the obvious!!!

Sorry for the noise.

cheers (said he, not very cheerfully),
