I have already written to Bernhard a suggestion to distribute 5.0.2
as 5.0.0 and 5.0.1 has some serious deficiencies and 5.0.2 is simply
Often a small modification in the code can make a big difference for
and that is the case for 5.0.2 (compared to 5.0.0 or 5.0.1)
So I would just like to ask whoever can test 5.0.2 please do it so that

as a stable and reliable code.
