	I havent searched that far, but cant find xev.c; can you dig it out
	of the src and send it my way?

	--the shi*t has hit the fan here.  my wife's mother is in the
	hospital [???], my w'chair seem to be on the verge of breaking
	down.  wife is downtown and/or in ambulance with her mother.
	meanwhile, my daughter is home with her boyfriend I dont like.
	_--whatelse?  oh yeah, I am running out of meds and the federal
	govt is crapping its pants about not the Severe drugs as much 
	as the pain meds I take. 

	Ah, *Life*.  well,  I cant go to bed until the kid leaves.
	just hope the chair doesnt Kwit until im near my bed.
