Dear David,

Thank you very much for your answer.

I already found almost the same answer from several years ago and thus 
did everything you recommended (despite contacting my distributor) 
without any success.

/I was hoping that it is something like an easy-to-fix known 
compatibility issue, but it seems to be more difficult.
