I don't have the full citation, but I assume a tangential comment I thought irrelevant for my dictionary entry on {chab}.  

Somehow I've lost the date of SuStel's post to this list but you may be able to find it in the archives.  If you do find it, I'd appreciate you letting me know so I can annotate my notes.
