Wow.  I was beginning to think that I was the only one in the
world who's ever had this problem?  Can't help you, but if you
find a solution I'd *love* to hear it!!!  Raix-X works great,
as long as you reapply it every week or two.  But once you
start using it, it would seem that you're stuck using it forever.
