I have a older compilation, cvs-ed and compiled October 26
This version work perfectly, not sure about the code as I no longer have the code
but there are some diff. between the 2 how thet were compiled:
working: freetype support disabled, compiler flags -xO5
not working: freetype support enabled, compiler flags -O

but as this problem also occurred with Linux as well with Solaris I do not think
the that freetype of the compiler flags are the problem?

Compiled new version today october 31, 2002
tested, import why no-checking works fine
imported the available USA datafile still error but i think this is the datafile
that has an error, tried the Dutch one and events shows correctly.
the USA shows thanksgving everyday  :-)

new version it be available on
i *would* be nice if my build we made available on mozilla's site
maybe in a separate directory?

also a solaris 9 (sparc) will be made available soon....
