Hi Kris,
Thank you for the explanation. Now it is really clear. It is hard work on
these kind of conditions. I always thought that when you have a good
fundament you can built it up.
Good luck with the making of 9.1 !  I will help if and when I can, my
options are limited unfortenately. I hope to improve that in the near

Best regards,
