what are you all doing on my thread? :-)

1) As Roland Smith pointed out (see below) - there was a bug in
    -STABLE sources, which has been repaired in the meantime.
2) All in all -STABLE is great, this must have been the first
    major issue I ran into during the last two or three years.

Sorry for top posting,
