As I said in the last email, sometimes it works just the way is has,
sometimes not.

I don't really mind from my side,
but it's annoying for those I'm sending my work...
One problem out of this is when you start again the stack, the init processing
( depending on my own design doesn't work correctly then. )
and from the user's point of view it just doesn't work !
This is the real side effect for me :(

So, I have to investigate this and make a consistent workaround.
Maybe it's because of my code, maybe not... but I need to fix it.
