hello Rolf
include works only in between sections. It does work here with the
default config. Could you please mail me the failing configuration so I
can have a look at it? As Wilhelm already pointed out, I did most of the
changes (and bugs :-) ) for the 1.3 release

Are you running the stock 1.3 version or from subversion?
Kind regards, Louis
