Jürgen,

Who are you referring to as "you" here.  Pavel?  Me?

I have no idea how to revert the change.  If you would be so kind?

With regard to making the patch elsewhere, I am happy for someone else to do that.  I am not
qualified to touch the build system properly.

 - Dennis

exactly, changing the tar file (original source) makes the whole patch 
process obsolete and we don't have control over it. Instead we should

1. extend our patch to fix the problem temporary in our source tree

2. try to upstream the patch to the original project.

Can you please revert this change and can you do it in the correct way 
as we handle external sources here.

Or does anybody else feel responsible for this?

Juergen
