i don't want to be nasty, but i hate to see unix become windows just because
they can't grasp a bit different philosophy. i don't mind changing configs
from gui, i just don't trust gui as the sole source of the configuration. 
but i guess i'm just a bit too much set in my ways. and it really doesn't
matter that much:)

it's ok. i just didn't know if the message got through. it's no rush. i don't
really need the plugin, i'm using shortcuts anyway. it only surprised me, that
it creates the config but doesn't read it. i would expect it to be the other
way around.

thanks anyway for your time
