Hey Nils, 

I'm not sure you saw the about backup and application manager today? ;-)

It was the decision of Marius to *don't make backups* in Application
Manager that got us here. And it is already fixed, unfortunatelly for
the IT-2006 users, only in Sardine, not in IT-2006.

Be sure we do "backup and reflash new image" on daily or weekly basis
here. Just imagine how annoying that it for us. Even worse knowing that
the "guilty" guy sits just next door :)
