Hi Elmar,

I can't really answer you precisely because most of my install are from 
scratch. I will try to run some tests over the weekend.
I will try to put a cfg file just in case it could be related.
I think that the idea of a warning if something wasn't overiden. Better 
maybe would be to have the name of the file(s) which didn't.
Hace you have already made such test ?

Will get back to you if i find anything interesting.
