     Thanks for the information.  I will keep it in mind in the event that
I ever run VMware.  The messages I've been getting, however, do not involve
backward jumps, just forward jumps, and do not stem from any sort of VM
software because I'm not running any VM software at present.  (None seems
to work on my system anyway.)
