Dear Mike, 

thank you, I will go through the bug reports this week. Is there a possibility 
to assign (or "ping") people on savannah? - I really like 
gitlab/github/bitbucket because of those functionalities. 

If yes, you could ping me in such cases...


P.S.: I still do not know why plotting crashes on some Macs. It works on all 
real and virtual machines that I am using.
