How to make NLA strips appear appear near the cursor(i e where I am working)

Hey guys.

I´ve got a very long animation - 20000 frames or so so when I add actions and convert them to NLA strips, I need the NLA strip to appear more or less where the cursor is on the timeline - but I dont know hot to fix this? - I currently have to go back to frame 0 and and “pick” it up there and move it manually to e.g. frame 1670 … I have previously worked with files, where the strip turned up in say frame 400, but I never found out how that was achieved.
Anyone knows? (ps I am still running 2.49b :o, but I am sure that many ex-users will know/remember/be able to answer this question )
