Much as I agree about using Linux that and the other recent posts seem 
to have strayed away from my original problem.  I've stopped trying to 
solve that because I dual boot openSUSE and Linux Mint and GIP works as 
it should on the latter.  Continuing the OT bit about Linux distros and 
despite being a long term SUSE user since about 1998 Mint is the one I'd 
recommend Windows users to try. But as I say that is horribly OT here.
