It works! I thought that adding this extra print statement was only for
debugging: so that it would print soth more on the screen. But
apparantly this fixes the problem too.

I just found a solution. If I Ctrl-C during the compilation windows asks
if I want to abort the batch process. As long as you don't answer the
question, the .rsp file is still there. So i quickly copy it and then
answer the question and thus end up having a copy of the file.
