Hi Marcus,

Thank you for your reply. And thanks for the help, Your comments made
me have another look on the code and this time I saw some parts in a
different light. :)

I still don't know what this line does exactly. But I learned that
I'll had to add some more stuff  to the ScAppOptions class than
initially thought. I'm sure you can implement something similar like
this line, but for now I have left that out for now. I have a working
patch, I'll post it in a few minutes.
