could virtually copy the tcl script for AlphaX -> xdvi?  (I guess this
might be moot if it really is working properly now, but the command line
might also allow easier experimentation.)

If this is still a problem, make sure synchronisation is turned on in the
View -> options menu. I wasted two hours before I discovered this!

Finally, I have an intermittent problem with iTeXmac, in that sometimes it
hogs all my CPU. If I do a 'top' from the terminal, itexmac 91.3.15) uses
80% or more my CPU time, slowing my whole machine down,when it seems to be
doing nothing. Does anyone know what the problem might be, or even a
