Dear mailinglist members,

today I encoutered a problem that I was able to isolate down to the 
combination of
pstricks-add and tickstyle=bottom. As soon as I load the 
pstricks-add-package, it interferes with
the defintion of "tickstyle=bottom" and resets ticks behaviour to 
default. Different arrangements of packages and key-options
did fail to get the desired tickstyle back as long as 
pstricks-add-package was active.

Due to the fact, that I was just amazed by its subticks-feature and want 
to use it, I'd really appreciate if someone could give me a clue where
(likely) I was doing wrong, or if (unlikey) this should turn out to be a 

The (most likely) reason might be, that my system/TeX-distribution might 
be out of date, since I did not step forward using texlive under WinXP(tm).
I do use MiKTeX 2.6 which runs an update right now, not updating any 
packages I was able to relate with this problem. Just to be sure I 
added: my \listfiles below.

Thanks in advance!
