Hi Phyllis,

Thank you for informing me.

No I didn't notice that there was a response to bug#5 (but I have the 
excuse that I didn't register it myself, even though I thank you for 
doing so).

The bugtracker software does not seem to offer the possibility (like 
some forums) to receive an automatic alert by email, that a reply or a 
new comment has been added to the author's message.

Well, it will take all of us to get used to new routines for using this 
different system...

I'm testing what you sent me. For the moment I am surprised by the way 
it works in a form and procedures that I hadn't imagined, but I am still 
seduced by the results... I'm not comfortable with it yet and I haven't 
tested it enough to know if it meets all my expectations. I will 
continue the tests in more depth.

Note that Cinelerra-GG crashed once at the beginning of my tests, but I 
had mishandled it at a time when I didn't really understand how to 
proceed to make it work. If it happens again, I'll find out under what 
sequence of procedures.

So I will make a report in the bugtracker a little later when I have 
tested it better.
