Everyone's busy, and if I would get an answer "sorry, no time to 
think this over, too busy" that would have been unfortunate, but a 
perfectly acceptible answer. I did not post to the mailing list until 
after you had created multiple new posts on G+ ... such things happen.

Ill will, no. Frustration because of a usability issue introduced in 
an upcoming bugfix release and not finding commitment, yes.

The question was not urgent for me in the weekend, and I did not see 
any other postings in the weekend so indeed I assumed you were 
enjoying yourself somewhere away from computers. I can be obnoxious 
but I don't mess with people's private lives.
Let's bury the hatchet. If you have any ideas about where the 
cause of my issue could lie, then I still would like to hear, 
otherwise I will just wait and see what happens with the 5.2.1
