I try to add a waypoint via "y" in the map. The new waypoint is shown in 
the map, but there is no entry in the file way.txt.

This is the message in a konsole (appears at the moment I click OK to 
store a new waypoint):

I run gpsdrive without mysql.

/home/slack/.gpsdrive/way.txt is available and writeable by user "slack".

The .gpsdrive/gpsdriverc is a new created with the right path for the 
way.txt-file.

I run Slackware Current and gpsdrive-svn from today.
