As I said installing 1.7 didn't help. I tried that. The only reason 1.7 was 
installed in the first place was because I tried that to see if it was fixed.

I have 1.6.3 now again, and now it seems to work. So something else must have 
been wrong for a while. Feel free to close the bug unless you get another 
report where it shows up again.
