Drag, thanks for your reply, and only 2 points more:
1) I say in a post that I tried a vanilla kernel (with a vanilla sources and it headers) with the same FC5 kernel results.
2) I think that all here are humans, and because sometimes we have some errors, we have not to pay allways for them.

And, again, thanks for your reply, I think I'm not the only user that uses FCx distributions.
