OK, Thank you.
Well this looks like the type of stuff we are dealing with recently.
We mentioned it to data with not any response at all, I guess they are
very busy with other things.
there is a small group of serbs who are working on renaming everything back
to pre 1989.
I guess we will have to deal with this on a daily basis. It is not the
first time we had this problem.
