Thanks, ffv1.3 works like a charm now. Regarding the unusual changes 
that are happening right now, I'm actually really happy to see them. 
Innovation is what drives us, and I really like to see stuff improving. 
Even if I get stumbled upon a bug, I can report them to get them fixed 
one day. If I wouldn't really care about the evolvement of a project, I 
wouldn't take my time to get the source and compile it, instead I would 
just download it from official repos.

Let's hope for a bug-free and innovative future! :D
