Ah, thanks for the hint! I changed these to the values you recommend
- let's see how it works out...

This might not be a very bad problem - I wonder how jumping to cutting
marks then works out. I would guess based on your description that
probably OK (unless the next cutting mark is on a different disk, but
that is again not such a bad problem).

Yes, this could be the next step if this "quick hack" should not work
Thanks for the info - I'll let you know how this turns out.
