Thanks. By intended result, do you mean that the dotted line
in the viewed pdf file from the short code appeared correctly?
which would support the hypothesis that it is something specific
to my computer/setup or that it appeared as I had intended
the example to demonstrate? in which case, it is consistent
with a problem with Leopard.
