I think I already did that, but will need to double-check.

Thanks for the hints, I will try to fix the history. However, due to
other tasks, I will probably not be able to do so within the next ca. 2
weeks. If anybody wants to pull the current repo, please be aware that a
forced push will probably happen within the next 2 weeks.

Any patches etc. are still welcome, and I will try to integrate them

best regards,
