You're right mate--I misread the second article to turn up in my search:

2. Kornai, J. In Memoriam: Tamas Liptak.. Acta Oeconomica. Vol. 49 (3-4). p
461-63. 1997-98

It was an obituary, all right, but written BY Janos, not about him!

Grin :-) ; I might copy this reply to OPE too. Looks like I've done a Mark
Twain! If I bump into Janos at a conference and someone ribs me about
this... I suppose it's me own bloody fault!

I think I'll go and have lunch now... My cognition must be suffering from
yesterday's very heavy night on the town!

Cheers all,
