Well, of course.
My question (and Sean’s i think) were more of the kind: „explain us how
things are done", and not "please do this for me“. So if it is of any value
if i load a fix in a fresh 1.4 image and run tests - but as in the FileList
case do not really understand what is going on - is of any help, i will
gladly do it.
