Done! Thanks for your help

With the suggestion from Giuseppe, I was able to locate the
problematic files (SAGA help files that included "...." in its name)
and fix the problem.

Version 1.0.7 is already available for download

Hopefully people will use it, find more bugs and have more ideas, and
soon we will have a new version and we will get closer to a final one
that can be directly integrated in the QGIS core
