Hi Phillip,

I didn't spend much time in finding out about removeAllProxies. This 
trick came to me along with a serious warning via email as an answer to 
my mailing list message.

I just used this cheating to find out, if the way I'm going besides that 
is possible. Now that I know, that it's working, I will read the other 
answers carefully and will try to understand what's going on there and 
how I can do it without ignoring this red, blinking lamp :)

Thanks for your support,
