Okay thanks, but 1.6 is not the issue here. There is something going on
in 1.9/trunk that is very different. Thanks for the 1.6 output, but
it's all right.

Thanks for the confirmation. You, too, are showing Linux demonstrating
this problem. It looks like bindings are wrong in 1.9. Ralph says he's
taking a look. The rankfile says "0:1", but you're getting "0,1".
