Hi Jean-François,

Your solution works well, not only with the minimal example, but also with my old sources. I didn’t know about \hypertarget. By Including it into my old sources everythink works as it should.

Thank you very much for your help.
Manfred

You should report this to the texlive list; go to <http://www.tug.org/mailman/listinfo/tex-live> to leave a message. If you don't join the list say so in your message so folks can write directly to you.
