Hi Alex & list!

Well, I was on vacation and wanted to give something back to the community. ;)

This query should only be used to build the table list in the left frame and for the
strucutre (if 'display comments' is true) and for the headers/results of any query.

I will add a code to "upgrade" the comment-table structure, if the fields are
missing. Or is emitting a red warning on the start page a better way?

I can make the query history configurable, but I definitely want to have it.

Okay, I can talk about that. But as you can see, the query window only uses the
snippet from tbl_query_box.php3, so that has to be modified as well.

They don't work? I didn't test importing yet, but selecting fields worked for me

Thanks! I appreciate that a lot :)
