I know, but I always make this mistake. ;-)

It is hard to believe that this bug is known since June and that there is 
neither a fix nor a solution. Deleting the file has worked for me, but I 
can't say that there are no side effects.

How should a newbie solve this? Without a work-around there are no 
updates possible.
