While there are some useful changes from the lucidabr package in the  
lucimatx package I guess I've always used the altbullet option in  
lucidabr and that has disappeared in licimatx. I just feel that the  
default bullet (and I use it in other places in some of my documents  
than in itemized lists). Not a big deal but annoying anyway :-)!

Good Luck,
