I said "speedbar like display". Since its in a window of its own,
rather than speedbar, it is indeed only speedbar like. 

Do forgive me, I'm going through a pedantic phase!

Yeah, I know. The problem at the moment is the best bug report I can
give, is "it doesn't work cleanly", which I guessed, correctly as it
turns out, that you already knew this. 

Normally I would be happy to spend a little bit of time tracking this
down, what works, and what doesn't, or even get my debugger out and
fix up a patch. But I'm just too busy at the moment.

Thanks for implementing it! I'm sure it too a fair bit more work than
making the suggestion. This why I would normally like to write a
proper bug seems small recompense for being given such
useful software for free (and freely!).
