Sorry! I noticed that it was closed when I submitted the answer and was puzzled too. I had clicked on the link from the e-mail notification of the question, read it & posted my answer and only then saw that it had been closed, but my answer was accepted anyway, so I guess I must have started the answering process before you closed it. Still, at least it means that anyone else who looks here can find the answer :-)

Have you re-opened it now, by the way? It no longer seems to say it is closed, in any case...
