i did not think about it, because usually this is working. the jump 
from .5 to .6 causes no problems. the same with .3 and .4, but they 
must have changed some critical in .5, which caused the problems. i 
added a warning, but i do not want to tell the people what they shall 
do.... because sometimes it makes sense to exchange a newer kernel
