I've search for this file but didn´t find. Meanwhile I tested to make a 
release version and the bug conditions are changing. No the pdfs are all 
corrupted at first try. Without the help of the mapi. :-((
The files loo the same with the ",".

It seems to me, that there´s something wrong within the embedded python 
interpreter (dlls loaded at runtime). Perhaps anybody knows which python code 
ist used to format the numbers in my previous example? Perhaps it would be a 
starting point for a request on the python list ...
