Many thanks for the remark. It seems, it has something to do with 
submitting via the devtools (maybe I did something wrong with tagging 
the prior release). Submitting it manually at least does not result in 
pretest rejection. I guess there is something out of sync which resulted 
in rechecking and old version.
