sajjad;

No problem the personal mail. You were not showing as subscribed to
the list from your first mail so I cc'd you as well as sending tot the list.

On further investigation with AOO 4.1.2 it appears that the evenly
spaced option does work as you you were asking about. As to why it does
I am not really sure.

Keith
