Remi / VRf:

Wha!  This one just jumps right out at you!  I duplicated it immediately ...
is a new one on us, I'll post it for resolution in the next release.

How commonly do you see this?  As a workaround, try a Build Complex and two
Real constants (ugly, but workable).

When Ken in the lab gets back from vacation, he's gonna give me his slightly
cross-eyed open-mouthed "WOW" expression.
