Hi Tom,

Ick! Very sorry about that.
I'm a bit unconcentrated in the moment.
Stopped smoking 19 days ago...

Yes, it did crash. This was an oversight, a special combination
of the main tasklet blocking in a channel, but it needed
to react on an exception of another tasklet. In that context,
at the moment the only way to get out of the channel is
a hard switch, since the variables are hidden in the stack.
Will have to redesign this, later.
CVS message:

corrected a bug reported by Tom Locke.
In the context of an exception and main blocking
in a channel, soft-switching is not possible and
must be prohibited.

cheers - chris
