As pointed out, I forgot to add KH6 as a new multiplier. If you read the
namedmult guidelines file in the c:\ProgramData\WriteLog (or with XP,
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WriteLog), it should
be clear how to make this change.
As I don't have the file with me here at my office, I'll post a revised
procedure to this list this evening.
