Thanks for the hint. I have to admit I did not try it yet. I have just created a similar simple test
case, which indeed compiles/works fine. Shame on me for not trying it out. For me this was always a
classical example of template function specialisation. I guess I should take a look at template
basics again :-)

Sorry for that and thanks for the quick response.
