bash 2.05.. I tried solaris' 'sh' didn't work, needed to link bash to '/bin/sh',
setting path did not help either.

I'm not using gettext; for whatever reason, gettext is coring inside of 
textdomain__... I'm busy checking that out right now..

yeah... its there... and if you have a patch I'd appreciate it..

yeah no problem. If you've got checkin permissions feel free to take the patch
and incorporate whatever you'd like.. 

Anyways, let me know about Jakubs' patches... what's really strange is that
msgtext worked fine on a 2.6 solaris sun4u machine.. and its not working on my

I'm still tracking it down..
