Thanks for this help.

It is strange to change things like this from one release to another. I
already pointed out that releases become sometimes less compatible
regarding the configuration of people in their $HOME...

If I could submit some woes, I will submit this one: always keep
backward compatibility for users' configuration between releases because
as a system administrator you have some work to upgrade your systems and
after that you have to face a lot of complains from the users who cannot
find their things going as every day before the upgrading...

Best regards
