I tried as suggested, and to make the situation more clear I have attached a
5 page pdf  with LaTeX source and pdf files. You may be able to quickly find
the problem in these pages. I am really reluctant to bother you again with
this problem. Or is it something that should be made more clear for other
novices in LaTeX as well?
Thanks   Adolf
