Hi Alex,

at first i thought that this problem could be caused from the recent changed 
in the pv code that was done in preparations for the sr merge. But if this 
also happens in the 1.4.4 version, this is not possible.

Are you sure that really result is NULL here? I'm not an expert in this dialog 
code, but i'd think that "value" should be null in profile without value. 
This is also the condition that is checked here:

pve = (pv_elem_t *)value;
if ( pve!=NULL && ((struct dlg_profile_table*)profile)->has_value) {...}

Yes, could be possible that the fixup function is not correct here.
