that's indeed a very late answer (for a very minor problem :))

we are running in circles here.
Allan pointed out this message was not consistent with the rest for
one operation
Dan pointed out this message was consistent in other (more common?) operation.

more important problems we have :)

personal (maybe I am just in a bad mood :))
