Sometimes things gets drowned in the information sea!

I did fix this right away! Maybe I has not made it in to an open
source release yet, but hey there ought to be some privileges with
buying a license ;) If you did feel a strong enough need you could
have fixed it yourself it was quite an easy fix! And I had actually
told you what the problem was! But maybe you felt writing a java
program was easier than trying to understand some erlang code that
somebody else wrote?!  Maybe I could have given you another pointer on
how to fix it, if you would have asked nicely even though that is not
my job! At least I do not feel embarrassed!
