Hi Stefan,

if it works without installed avast or with a different virus scanner installed, then I suggest
to open a ticket by avast.

We can't atm test it without a VPN connection to test whether it's at all related to that.
I'll try to do a local set-up of a working copy to see whether it's reproducible in that environment
too. Can't tell atm when I got the time to get it done, but might have a few minutes left
today. Let's see.
