hi mark,

i was now for few hours in austria and even now i came back. on the journey 
i thout (try the .lck files too - nobody knows, things happens ...). i did 
it and it was the problem. i.e. P9 lives again.
i had problems with lck-files hundreds times before, but never got such a 
message (because of .lck files).

thanks mark - good to know, that there's somebody, who has good ideas for 
solving problems. i'm alive again - and have a lot to work now.

why should to solve problems easily, even if there's a complicated way for 
it too ...
