No Peter, I expect no specific help from you if you have no help to
give. I did say I was going to try again, having more light on some
issues so that I can more efficiently find the problem. But if you
absolutely want to do it, well, go for it! :)

Also, it might not be totally my problem. I'm using FPC & ROPS and
something somewhere is not working. The only thing I know is that:
2.0.4 + ROPS = ok;
r3823 + ROPS = ok;
HEAD + ROPS = not ok.

Therefore my first intuition is that something changed in FPC. This is
the origin of this thread in case someone whould have known... Now I'm
trying to find the revision... painfully. But with the comment of
Jonas, I'll get it faster.
