Oops, I was not aware of that... So the next sentence is quite right :)

+1. In 1.5.1 or 1.5.2 maybe ?

Ok, get it. I don't really like having KDIF files all over, so what I do is
generally to create them on the fly in the setup, using a tmp file. I find
it easier to manager than to have a separate file (you have all the test in
front of you instead of having to look in a resource sub directory, not to
mention the intricacy of class loading issues ...)

Far beyond your current need, I guess...

Anyway, my question was answered and we have more food for thought and
