mmm, I cannot understand where the quotes disappeared in my mind...  
Yes, you are correct, there are quotes, but for some reason I decided  
that there were none...

ah, so my expression only worked because addr is not used, while  
cookie, which is used, was correctly assigned. Whatever. I will have  
a look at that doc to understand your RE fully, thanks.

The only observation is that these errors should be probably logged,  
if not forwarded to the list admin, or they might pass undetected  
without the collaboration of attentive users.

Thanks again.
