      Hi Nico,

      Though I don't (as yet) seem to have any problems (only advantages) with your latest S/W version, it might be interesting to see if further improvements (e.g. in CPU-load) can be obtained. So, yes I would be interested in a Saturday Night Version, but only if you would write and publish it anyway. Please don't make it just for me. :-)))

      Thanks for your excellent work!

      Hi Guy, Dallas and others,
      well, after a software release a developer has always a little bit
      more time to relax, putting order on his desktop an so on...
      So I exploited this moment of relax yesterday evening and examined in
      more detail the reason of this "funny" playback feature which seems
      deeply in love the VAC :-)
      So I simulated a system in which the VAC was not installed and after
      some debugging I think I've found the cause of such a deep love or, at
      least, of the disaffection of the code for systems where the VAC was

      Said in algebraic terms, the reason is that "sets of instructions are
      not always invariant under the commutation of their elements".
      More simply: the code relied on a predefined execution order of two
      concurrent threads which occurred only when the VAC was installed.
      Even more simply: ok, I made a mistake! :-)

      If anyone would like to get a "Saturday Night Version" and see if it
      solves the playback issue (whether the VAC is installed or not),
      please let me know and I will promptly upload it to the server.
