Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The binary file was misleadingly committed. To correct this error, I was
using my administrative rights, to keep the file history clean.
I've got no problem, if this option is removed in the future. But as long as
an option exists, I think it should not corrupt files!?

Kind Regards
