Glad you're being discreet with your thesis advisor, Llrrrpp.

Ultimately, when push comes to shove, she'll think, at least a little, about how good she'll look good if and when she recommends you for a job. Whether she'll be risking precious job-market capital, or making a good investment (sorry about the metaphor).

I don't mean that your advisor won't back you-- only that you should remember that she's got self-interested concerns that may at some point surface-- Part of your task now is to give her the confidence that you'll act in accord with her good opinion. Which I'm sure she has, and you've done, or she wouldn't be co-authoring a paper with you.

Just for the future. Esp. as you get closer to the point where you're about to finish.

It's not everything, but one of those things to keep in a corner of your mind.

Jost
