That's what I was trying to say (suggest) actually ;)

Actually I think the limit is not only on Win32, but that's not the issue

Anyhow, from the quick testing it seems that I can safey plant the -F option

so I am all set and thanks for clarifying that. I would not have guessed I
can order it like that (need more coffeine ;)
