Special thanks to Thomas Anders <as well as Dieter Bohlen :-)> and
Dave Floyd who were right on the money with suggesting patch 104212
which solved the auto-negotiation problem.

Also thanks to

Craig Russell
Erin Jones
John Malick
Kris Briscoe
Matthew J. Rock
Petri Kallberg
Rahul Roy
Steve Williams

who offered other generally useful advices which unfortunately were
not applicable for my purposes.
