Hi Nicolas,

First of all thank you very much for quickly sending the logs!

I hope to have addressed all the above problems in 4.0~beta2+experimental48.
Could you please give that one another try and report back? Could you please
even send debug logs in case it works fine? As said in the other thread just
moments ago, I'm trying to to a bit of cleanup work as well.

Thanks a lot,
