Hi guys,
thanks for all sugestions. During the weekend i'll redesign my source of CP
html page. I hope my issue is caused by missing urlredirect code.

I just didnt expect pass throught mac is using CP page. Maybe same issue was
causing all my lockups before when i used 1.2 - This version is working
without missing redirecturl code.

Thanks for help - i'll let u know my results.

Bye, Pete
