deja vu.

Here's what I just posted to comp.text.tex on this:

The bugs are supposed to be e-mailed to Frank or one of the other
There's a note to that effect in the file.

I'd like to note that trying to track ``printing error blue not
aligned'' is
rather footless. Unless caused by an actual misregistration in the .pdf
file or some mis-imaging of the plates it's going to be different from
book to
book, depending on how the paper just happened to be handled in-between
print runs --- a number of pages which Frank notes are mis-registered
are fine
in my copy, while others in copy which aren't noted as such are
out-of-register. Even if the .pdf is mis-aligned between colours, some
will come out okay---such is the analog nature of printing on a press.

That said, I _really_ think the duotone screen grabs were rather poorly
in a number of cases which made them _much_ more vulnerable to
problems than they ought to've been, and resulting in some pretty ugly
(well at least in my copy, YMMV, well, your registration).
