Hi Ted.
Heh.... You'r probably right about the logon/logoff thing (probably the
reason to why some features was missing on my acf).
Tomorrow morning (Central European Time) I'm planning to make new releases
of the existing acf's. I assume that everything is ok tomorrow (it probably
is already) so I just tag/release it and ship it to ncopa so he could add it
to next Alpine release (or release candidate). In case you see some reason
why I should not make new release of some acf (if you find something broken
that you don't have time to fix before going home for the day), please send
me a email so I have it tomorrow morning (CET).

Thanks for checking things up (and sorry if I cause you extra trouble).
