Also, if you're using that oasiswin95 package, you have to add the
following thing in:

diff -u stk/db.c indexclose/db.c
--- stk/db.c    Mon Dec 29 18:05:07 1997
+++ indexclose/db.c     Tue Feb 17 18:02:05 1998
@@ -565,7 +565,7 @@
     qsort(help_table, top_of_helpt, sizeof(struct help_index_element),
+  fclose(index);

Basically, if you dont know what a patch file is yet, add the
"fclose(index);" line to db.c around line 565 or for the qsort

NB:  To Brandon Brown (the guy writing the NewbieFAQ) ---> Maybe add this
patch file in there for the "newindex/index" bug question?
