Hi Ondrej,

Cards on the table I think that might be above my geek level. I usually stick with deb files and was happy to get through the configure, make, etc of a tar.gz file.

The experimental 0.11 is indeed better than my 0.10 current version and this small bug is fine so long as I go somewhere with better internet where I don't have to switch servers all the time.

Thank you so much not only for the great tool set but for also being kind enough to take the time to reply.

Have a great day.
