Sorry, I don't have an answer.  On a related topic though, I'd 
like to know how you go about deleting characters that you don't have
the password for.  

Thanks much!

The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from 
pure thought-stuff.  He builds his castles in the air, from air, 
creating by exertion of the imagination.  Few media of creation 
are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable 
of realizing grand conceptual structures.
