Hello Marc!

I admit that one cannot conclude anything based on one single test. Needless to
say, there are many questions you can ask regarding the test I'm referring to.
Having said that I still find this single testresult very interesting and that's
why I decided to post it here in this Forum. The next Toga-version might be a
small improvement compared to Toga II 1.1a and it might be a big one. I hope the
latter :-)
