We are probably all just too polite to mention these little 
problems......<VBG>   Besides,  the Swiss spelling is "Strubelpeter" 
according to my Swiss wife, who grew up in Switzerland and  should know.  I 
would have guessed "Strüwelpeter" myself.

I'll bite on the aeuploid/aneuploid thing -- I've never seen the "aeuploid" 
spelling anywhere except in your message.  Tell us about it, please.
