Well, my fault was to post to the mailing list before checking what
has been changed in cvs and this caused me to post about an assumption
instead of information and checked cvs later.

On the other hand, your postings sounded more likely to be flames as
you did not really said something about the issue itself but picked on
some bad formulation from a non-native english speaker.

But as I wrote you already in private mail, I don't like to discuss
further and this is my last word on that topic.
