 _Please_, stop this discussion (in this list, that's it). I don't 
know if I can speak for other FPC developers here, but personally I'm 
grateful for every correction in our messages. OTOH, reading this 
whole thread takes me much more time than simple correcting the 
particular message. If you feel a need to continue, you could move 
the thread to fpc-other.

 You might have a slight problem with my Czech, I guess. ;-)
