[ROOT] Problem with hadd

Hi.  I am trying to use the 'hadd.C' macro in $ROOTSYS/tutorials to
combine a series of files containing both histograms and ntuples.  The
program works fine in the case of histograms -- however I find that in the
case of ntuples/trees what it creates is a chain of pointers to trees
in files and not a new tree.  So if I delete one of the files I used for
merging I get an error like:

Error in <TFile::TFile>: file ... does not exist

I'm sure it is a very simple fix to this macro to have it save the actual
tree to the file rather than the pointers to trees.  Thanks.
