Sorry Chris, I'm about to break that record.

As reported to Freedom Scientific in the bug report form, the adjust options
(jaws key plus v) dialogue in Outlook appears to be quite broken.  I cannot
adjust settings with the space bar.  For options with more than two setting
choices, the space bar toggle appears to only move one choice from the
default.  Also, I've found that settings aren't being saved when I hit
enter.  There is some overlap with the settings center, but not everything
in the jaws-v dialogue has a counterpart in the settings center.

This behavior is consistent, though sometimes the setting changes seem to be
honored.  An example is setting the top and bottom alerts to play a sound
rather than being silent.  This setting works inconsistently on my machine.

I am using JFW 12 build 413 with Outlook 2007 under Windows XP.  I haven't
tested the jaws-v dialogues in other programs like Word or IE.
