Hi Marcel--

This problem has been bothering me for a long time too, but it'll be
hard to fix, due to some really bizarre design choices I made when I
first SGML-ified this document and tried to make it more MI.  It has
to do with the way that we turn text on and off for different
architectures.  I probably ranted on this on the doc@ list several

Bottom line:  It's probably not anything that Jim can do anything
about...sorry about that.  :-(


PS.  We could *insert* some MD text into those sections so that they
are not empty, but I can't make the section headings go away.
