Macaw - Alignments on the Mac - Problems

I've been using Macaw on the Mac and have been having some problems 
with it.

I've been using Macaw 2.0.3 on the lab's LC475 by pasting sequence in 
since I found it impossible to load files of sequence.  The menu was 
corrupt and so it wasn't a problem generated by the minefield of 
sequence format differences.  Since this was an undocumented bug I 
guessed that although highly polished it hadn't been tested on many 
types of Mac.

When I attempted to use it on a Quadra the program found everything 
to be an homology.  Then I found Macaw 2.0.4 at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov 
/pub/macaw/mac-68k and tried that, only to find the same problem.

Does anyone know how to run Macaw on this Quadra, or how to contact 
the authors?

NB sorry if my previous posting was garbled.
