oh, sure - i'm sorry...
...here we go: yes, i got a custom macro, defined in a collection
specific extra.dm . and metadata values that use this macro ,
and are then displayed by the "format DocumentText" statement .
("enriched" html's and metadata.xml)
the problem now seems to be that something that has to do with
highlighting "disturbs" the first macro argument _before_ the macro
is resolved so that it appears to displayclass::expandstring (?) as
if it had only one (corrupted) argument.
meanwhile i suspect it to happen only (not necessarily always,
though frequently) if the first (or any?) argument value contains a
character like '-' or '.' (word boundary?) - as soon as i turn off
highlighting everything's fine again.

any ideas? (if more information is needed just let me know ;-)
