Never bothered me.

Huh? How small would they have to be to not be "Big kit-built"? I never
made that association, and now that you mention it I still don't see it.

Wonder if someone had your Omni VI opened up and forgot to put back some
parts. Mine has never had this.

screen on it, and I like it that way.
