Guess when I downloaded 1.3(45)? (Not quite June 12th.) :)

This version seems to be working a little better, at least when I
initiate operations from the Newton. (Asking the Mac to back up appears
to work and dies partway through.) Glad to see that people are still
maintaining software for the Newt.

If I get any reproducible crashes I'll be sure to send them on to Simon.
