If anyone has a small mailbox with this behaviour repeatable, I'd appriciate a copy...

I believe this may be due to the new config file parser. It doesn't remove trailing white spaces so if you have a space or tab or so after the word 'thread' it fails. This is not my intention. I'll correct this behaviour.

Meanwhile, you can either remove the white space (assuimg there is any) or put the word in quotes like "thread".

2b4. Or more correctly a pre-2b4 version dated 13th of October. Tom von Alten supplied me with this version, which he had got from Kent.

If he did, there are only two possible reasons to why it doesn't work now. A. He didn't correct it properly or B I've reintroduced the problem.

My appologies for adding this amount of bugs, but I felt the need to change a few internal things rather drastically and the new bugs we see now are because of that. I also believe in very frequent releases so that you all can help debugging and testing.

2b3 is probably still the most stable version available. I work hard on getting "my series" to that level and beyond.
