nobody out there who is able to reproduce the problem and can say that
Herbert's fix is solving the problem?

We have reviewed the patch from Herbert with 3 people and the patch is
save. The fix solved the issue for Rob who was able to reproduce the
problem partly before he used the patched library.

Windows 8 becomes more and more important on the desktop and windows is
our main platform. I tend to a respin at the moment but will wait 1-2
hours longer to receive potentially more feedback.
