I surely _can_ search and waste a lot of hours hereby and I possibly will
find a losution hereby...

The point is that - when I do so and dig myself though all this problems
"quietly", the documentation will never get better, because it appears as if
it would be already perfect (because nobody asks). This leads to the situation
that every new user will run into the same problems, and with growing features
of the software, the situation will get more and more worse.

Developers often do not see the most trivial problems because they *know* what
other people/users have to *learn*. This is normal, because they are always in
touch with this software. But you cannot presume that everybody starts to
get his knowledge by himself from scratch!

Therefore I point out problems I have, even if that may look "trivial", to
show the writers of the documentation where they should add some information,
and which information is actually missing. This will (so I hope) be added to
the documentation and make it better - also for all newcomers.
