I'm working with the last VM for improving and testing the LargeIntegers
plugin. Therefore I have problems now...

Do you - or any other one - plan to provide a fix in the near future?
Otherwise - if it takes longer than a week or so (currently I'm busy
with a mechanism for automatically switching external prim calls on and
off and not with the plugin) - I vote for withdrawing the update until
it works with the last VMs.
