Funny, this is at least the second mail of Jaco that I did *not*

SPAM filter upstream must be catching his mails). I'm only able to
follow this thread by the quotes others made.

Jaco, could you please try to send a mail to me directly (to
bodewig@bost.de as well as stefan.bodewig@epost.de), just want to see
if there is a general problem with the setup of either account,
thanks.

Especially in the context of move this might be useful, I agree. The
default should be off of course.

I'm not sure. When I wrote the touch task, I faced a similar situation
and decided to just issue a warning. I'm still not sure whether an
Exception had been the better choice.
