I tried that but...
I need a password?
I asked a password from that system but still have to
receive one.
I got the impression from the feedback after appling that it
simultaniously mail me the password.
It doesn't, is it hung?
I will wait a couple of days for the mail with my password.
If you have
not recieved a bug by that time, could you add it on behalf
of me?
Or make that program mail-out again?

                           Reboot America.

this will be fixed in the next rawhide release -
both crafty & gnuchess provide 'chessprogram', which
xboard requires.
