Thanks again, Daniel.
BTW, are you aware of any non-Shamir implementation of a secret
sharing scheme available for download? I have been looking for it, but
no joy so far.
There is a XOR-based secret-sharing scheme, designed by some Japanese
guys (Kurihara et al.) that purports to be better (faster, less
complex) than Shamir's scheme; they described it but did not release
the code.
Please, let me know if you know of any other implementations.

As an afterthought, have you got some code with deniable encryption? I
am looking for that too.
