strings with a lot of spaces/tabs in front of them are
corrupted. try opening a c/c++ file in developer
studio to see what happens. It isn't limited to 1
application. all applications suffer the same fate.

    It looks like some sort of font spacing problem. The
    characters seem to be stepping on each other. If you
    switch to the regular Courier font in your application, the
    problem goes away for that application.

    This should be fixed in CVS - can someone confirm?

    Here's your confirmation. Sorry that I didn't get to this
    before now. But, I completed the project that required VB
    programming. So, I haven't run into the problem since.

    But, today I reproduced the problem in rdesktop-1.1.0 by
    using Arial (Western) in Access VB. Then, I attempted to
    reproduce the problem in the same way with rdesktop-1.3.0,
    and found no problem.

    So, it looks like you've nailed it.

    Thank you.

    Gary.
