Thx for those hints. I already had Oren Patashnik's documentation but  
I don't find it that helpful - I will have a look into the other  
stuff, but I think I read already at least the Tips and FAQs.
Thanks for the offer to help - if I can't solve the error after  
reading all the stuff, I will send you a mail ;)
