Vladimir,

I am forwarding your response to both yazlist and 
zebralist: yazlist because for the moment pazpar2 
does not have it's own list, and zebralist 
because I am not sure whether the issue you 
describe involves YAZ or Zebra--or both.

Hopefully someone will be able to answer your question.

David
