Klaz - just got back home from my client and gave it a whirl. It works a treat under FireTOS and Mint. Great work as ever! :D

Great!

Nevertheless I am wondering, as I had no decompression issues at all, with my Bee and FreeMiNT, ... ?

The test versions you have tried were not packed.
The "official" one on my website is. I guess I'd better unpack that one for now. :)

The tears are welling in my eyes again, I need twenty big buckets to catch them in, twenty pretty girls to carry them down, twenty deep holes to bury them in.

Do things really need to be packed in this day and age (especially when we're talking about 56KB)?

To muddle the issue even more, the official version is the one I'm using and it's working fine.

Well if you have a 1040stfm with only a floppy drive you might want to put more games on a disk.. I agree it's not that necessary but it might be good to have..

Well, exactly what Christos said. :)
It sure ain't needed for newer machines, but the patches will also work on plain STs from a floppy drive or from an old MegaFile30, so packing is sensible.

If it's really a CPU cache issue (and I'm quite sure it is), the outcome may vary on different software setups.
