Seems to be true.

Also seems to be true. ".RNh" works like ".rnh".

Well, now I know how.

Yes, but ".rnh" is different from ".RNH". Significantly different,
it seems.

No, but there is (still, I assume) the product feedback Web form.

Case-sensitive file name processing (".RNH" detection) in the RUNOFF
code sounds like the probable cause. Thanks for the suggestions. If
anyone promises a fix, I'll report back.
