I recommend anyone who has tried mergins settings and is having difficulty 
to run a repair on JAWS and configure settings manually. I think the new 
JAWS is the best version to come out in quite some time, but I've learned 
to really not trust the merge feature. It takes some extra time to 
configure manually, but it's worth the effort. Manual configuration is 
also a great way to stumble on some of the new features you may have 
glossed over in the readme file and possibly find some benefits therein 
you might otherwise have missed out on. Just my thoughts.
