Indeed, it is. Unfortunately, Amaya crashes now on the next request, like 
Amaya9.53 did. This might be unrelated to the bug found by Yusuke Ishii.

The following happens: Initially, everything works fine. Then I load 
annotations, which also works. But after that, the next http-request (hitting 
the reload button, selecting a link, loading annotations a second time) 
causes a crash:
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (!prev): 0x0a57e010 ***
*** Amaya: Irrecoverable error ***Aborted
or sometimes simply indicating a segmentation fault.
