sorry, I wasn't aware of currentWs. It's neither in my 0.9.2 version nor
in the online API documentation. But thanks, works well and is much
nicer. (Patch was applied 2009, 0.9.2 was released Dec. 2010?!)

I wouldn't apply the patch at all if we already can achieve this
functionality, maybe cleanup insertPosition.

Kind regards,
