Did you even try the suggestions I posted?  Did you bother to report 
back whether they worked?

Did you follow up to Giorgos questions?  Or to Donald J O'Neill's?  Or 
to illoai at gmail.com's?  No, you just came back and whined.

Developers have better things to do than fix problems which are mostly 
caused by people not following the instructions correctly, or thinking 
that they knew better than the instructions.  The problem you have is 
guaranteed to be a configuration problem on *your* system because 99.9% 
of people out there have no trouble at all.  I want the developers to 
spend their time doing just that, developing, not responding to 
questions that us mortals can usually handle.  You may think that your 
problem is important enough to rate a developer fixing it for you but I 
doubt that many people here would agree with such a judgement.

Looking through the archive, I could find on one question from you on 
this topic, from Dec 31st 2005, which is certainly not the year in your 
subject line, and not a great time to expect speedy responses .  You did 
get a reply from Kent Stewart, and again you didn't reply at all.  How 
could anyone possibly know that his suggestion didn't work for you?  So 
far I count 5 different people who have attempted to help you with this 
issue and so far I see not one single piece of feedback from you on how 
their suggestions worked out.

Please, switch to DragonFly.  You could also try shooting yourself in 
the foot, and cutting off your nose to spite your face.  I gather some 
people enjoy that kind of thing and you would seem to be one of them.

Welcome to the select few on my kill list.
