That's really a tough question. Changing the field width will take me about 5 min and has minimal impact, but changnig GEMS after L&A is not a very good idea if it can be avoided. I'll make the change today; it will be in 1.11.7. Just remember there will be a couple of other minor things in 1.11.7 ( Nel's Quebec Vote For RCR at least). If you want the release, let Dmitry know directly and he'll cut it. If you think better of it, let it sit until after the election.
