Hi Daniel,

thats exactly what I did. I just hoped that some of you experienced 
similar and could give any hints.
The support already replied - and complained that I didn't use the debug 
version and didn't provide any debug-output.
The hatch is: I used the debug version and didn't get any further 
information that I could provide. (And I wrote that in
my initial support-ticket, but the supporter obviously just pasted the 
above link, without reading my message :( ).

Best regards,
