[pstricks] problem in log plot

Dear Herbert,
I have a trouble with log graphs. (I used pst-plot 1.44)
I understand subtick=10 as the number of intervals between two mains ticks thus drawing 9 subtick lines. But when I used the following code, I got 1 subtick in log graph and no in Cartesian graph. (By default subtick is 0)
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{pst-plot}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(5,5)
\psaxes[xylogBase=10,logLines=all](5,5)
\end{pspicture}
\hspace{1cm}
\begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(5,5)
\psaxes[axesstyle=frame,ticksize=0 5](5,5)
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}
To draw 10 subticks in log graph one should use subtick=9 whereas in rectangular plot one should use subtick=9.
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{pst-plot}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(5,5)
\psaxes[xylogBase=10,logLines=all,subticks=9,subticksize=0](5,5)
\end{pspicture}
\hspace{1cm}
\begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(5,5)
\psaxes[axesstyle=frame,ticksize=0 5,subticks=10,subticksize=0](5,5)
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}
If I looked at the example in your book (English edition, 2011), most log examples are draw with subtick=10 whereas now on the website examples it is subtick=9. So for log plit, we have to do subtick rect-1.
Moreover subticks=10, ... 20, ... seems to draw incorrectly. By the way, in log graph setting subticksize=0 to cancel drawing has no effect.
For both kind of graphs, I have also a small trouble with (sub)tickwidth=0pt and (sub)ticklinestyle=none: the lines are still drawn.
\psset{yunit=1.5cm,xunit=3cm}
\begin{pspicture}(-1.25,-4.75)(3.25,.75)
\psaxes[xticksize=-4.5 0.5,ticklinestyle=dashed,subticks=5,xsubticksize=1,%
ysubticksize=0.75,xsubticklinestyle=none,xsubtickwidth=0pt,
subtickcolor=gray]{->}(0,0)(-1,-4)(3.25,0.5)
\end{pspicture}
I believe there is a bug in the code for log line and I would prefer to have the same behavior for rectangular and log plots.
Best regards,
Patrice
