Martha:  Does your Whisperlite have one of the new "shaker" jet-cleaning
gizmo's?  On this list, or maybe on backpack-l, there was a discussion of
this time-lag with the gas.  And it was normal with the shaker jet stoves.
If someone else doesn't reply with that information, I'll try to find it
and pass it on.  I'll wait over the weekend and see what replies come in.
