Thanks, I will ask again when I know exactly which data structures are 
I am working on a local copy of the 1.0.2 version, so annotating anything 
there won't help anybody ;-), and probably the most bugs I would find 
would result from my code and not from yours because I have still little 
insight in Mono. 
Ciao Christoph
