Uh, where...? Didn't know that. I was just aware of a fix in the autosave
routine, which I haven't applied yet (but will do so most likely this
evening). Hopefully this fix will be compatible with 0.7.2 (A.L.E.C said it

Well, if you don't mind I would prefer this way for the time being. Simple
reason: I can fiddle around with patches myself without having to bother my
main admin. A new installation (for me) is a bigger task which I can't/won't
do myself.

If you can send me those patches (off-list?), I'll be happy to apply them

With regards to "latest SVN": In a previous message you said we should
install 0.8-beta, so this advice is now superseded with "latest SVN", right?
Just wanna be sure...

Ok, should the problems persist after appyling the patches (and/or
installing the latest SVN), I'll try it with a different browser.

Hopefully. :-) But we may have another issue here: Although I enabled
'log_session', there is still no file "session" in the logs directory. Are
entries to this file written in case of any errors/timeouts only...? So far
I haven't had another session timeout since I enabled this option, but I
also haven't used RC heavily since then - due to the job I'm being paid for.
;) But now I'm waiting any minute for another timeout and it would be a pity
if it would happen, but wouldn't get logged.

If there is anything else for me to do apart from just enabling the option,
let me know.

Thanks for still being attentive,
