hm, I checked my latest patches we did in december/january with those that is 
now commited ...

Interestingly it seems that you commited an old work-in-progress snapshot (and 
not the end-version) as qstore for example seems not to be handled right in 
libmpeg2 that is commited atm.

I'll check it, test and possibly send patch.
