thank you for the information.
There is also that
- some of the grammars (assume rpl_ddl* , not used in automatic runs)
  suffer from the server being more strict in case of unsafe statements
- the WL5092* grammar (successor of rpl_ddl*) is not completed
It is rather not to be expected that we get time to fix this.

AFAIR there is some delay between the push of updated grammars to RQG
and their use in automatic runs. So we have a chance to detect and fix
such problems. John will know better,
