thanks, this works fine now.

Now my problem is that the python on my IBM/Aix machine does not support
zipping. But I probably can zip and upload the necessary file myself
using standard tools. I tried to decypher what should be done from the
python script and saw the
'from runner import upload_logs'
but there is no 'runner' module, is there? I'm not very good in Python
so any hint would be welcome.
