It is indeed sad that this is happening with the present version of
the interface...we are trying to complete excercises during courses
in Trondheim and next week in Oslo...sadly, most of these require 
input of the type described above (ie: leucine & zipper)....and because of
this, SRS is letting us down :-(

Dear Gijs: Is there any chance of getting this fixed (soon!)?
