Thanks for publishing this.  I've had fun looking at the code, just
the right size example of MrEd programming for me.  Don't know about
Linux and MacOS, but I can tell you that it builds and runs okay on
OpenBSD 3.0 and 3.1.

I think I might be seeing something like what Shriram saw.  I had it
create a catalog of /usr/src, watched it frantically update the tree
(bottom left pane), and got a file 2137993 bytes big.  (I only run
'make clean' just *before* building.)  It does well searching for
expressions with only a few hits, but I gave up on .o$ after a few
minutes.  Just an experiment, my lazy man's guess is that it's too
eager updating the display.

Again, I really appreciate seeing the code.
