Dear list,

just to answer my question myself by some private help of Herbert:

Here the perfect result to suppress the thickness of the bar that was 
added; _pstricks-add_ offers a WON-DER-FUL command named: \resetOptions, 
that sets all values to the default values and that now allows to 
overwrite some globally set pstricks settings easily locally within the 
\pspicture environment -- very cool!!!

Herbert, keep as well on trucking on the experimental pstricks-add and 
maybe you will move the \resetOptions to the basic pstricks package -- 
really useful for locally or globally resetting the values to the 
default. Indeed this trick solved all my problems to setting values 
globally vs. locally. 


\psset{arrowscale=4,arrowlength=3,arrowsize=0 1.5,arrowinset=0,
tbarsize=0.25pt 2}
% Here the trick
% End of the trick

Thanks a lot for your steady work and maintainance of the powerful 
PSTricks bundle.
