Hey all,

There was a bug in version 0.21.2 (and, I think, previous versions as well). Basically, the \intbl command wasn't initiating the creation of a table until a new group (i.e. a segment in RTF starting with {blah blah ...}) proceeded it. This should not be the case - if the \intbl command is processed, it should trigger the start of a table (if not already within a table) without requiring a new group to follow the command.

I have fixed this bug, and attached the file I modified with the bug fix (convert.c). I've tested this fix with a bunch of RTF files, and it seems to work well. However, I haven't done any extensive testing (and I'm not sure what kind of requirements there are for testing a bug fix for GNU software).

Anyway, I don't know where to officially submit this fix, so I'm putting it here. Hopefully that is okay.
