Great, thanks for the fix.

I am pretty certain that I can review it this week. I only gave it a
short glance so far but this needs a closer look.

I'll add that to my urgent todo-list and should be able to get it done
in the next two weeks.

Would not really like to do that for the current w-c version. But I
admit that I did not try to determine how much time it would take to
implement it in the current version.

Thanks for the effort. I know that I need some pushing concerning w-c
at the moment. It is hard to determine the timeline on w-c-1.60. The
majority of the basic structure is there and the stuff I have been
doing in the last weeks was adding small bits and pieces of
functionality back in. I added a short PLANNING.txt file but that does
not contain too much information yet. I'd definitely like to get the
configuration structure completed before I finish this document. At
that point the class structure should be clear enough to continue
together on the newer version. I hesitate to make promises on the
timeline since that often turns out to be too optimistic. I'd
definitely suggest we continue to use the 1.50.* line for a while and
kill the most important bugs there.
I'm definitely not going to give up on the w-c-1.60 version because I
feel we need a better structure in order to be able to efficiently
maintain the code. I do see the benefit of that in layman and would
like to have a similar situation with w-c.
