Yes I hate it terribly. Sometimes I also have to hate myself :-)

I agree. I even thought about adding some ideas on this additional problem
to my proposal but it was too late in the evening and I thought it could stand
alone. It seems I was wrong.
So stay tuned. Probably tomorrow evening (It's too late now again) I will write
an expanded proposal. At least in case that my rough ideas work out.
Thanks for your explanations. I think that I now understand what you see
as problems.

Cheers, Edgar

P.S. So you see that I don't accept variant-control yet :-)
