I'll be posting this to the board in a bit, but the jist of
it is this....

I sat in the room with the editor while they corrected this error, and the
revised copy of the episode that I received on vhs was, indeed, corrected.

My suspicion is that they've put all their emphasis on getting the correct S2-4
widescreen eps delivered to SFC in a comparitively short amount of time, and
haven't sent them the new master yet. (The closed captioning that appears
there now is a different process.)

I have a call in to WB now about this, but I suspect that the above scenario is
correct. I think they preferred at this stage to put all their efforts into
getting the big problems done first, focusing on the smaller problems later.
