the mentioned checking / fixing program is not completely new. It is a part 
of TDE from R14.0.0~pre. The principle is that the program runs only once 
and if no new check / fix rule is added, it is not run again.

When the user logs in for the very first time, with a new profile, the 
program will run for the first time. However, in such a situation there 
should not be many tasks to be solved, so it should not be a delay.
