[Typo3] Problem with multilingual site ("one tree concept")

I followed the multili  tutorial to setup a multilingual site using the one-tree-principle.
Sadly I cannot get it to work.  

1) I defined the Website languages (default is german),
2) I created my own navigation.php script to switch between languages (basically setting the T-Parameter in the url), which works fine
3) IThe TS Setup of my main template looks like this

# Languages
config.linkVars = L
config.sys_language_uid = 0
config.language = de
config.locale_all = de_DE

# Italian language, sys_language.uid = 1
[globalVar = GP:L = 1]
config.sys_language_uid = 1
config.language = it
config.locale_all = italiano

# English language, sys_language.uid = 2
[globalVar = GP:L = 2]
config.sys_language_uid = 2
config.language = en
config.locale_all = english



Now the problem is:
Whatever I do, the page always shows the german language. I can even use
config.sys_language_uid = 2 (hardcoded) as only line and nevertheless if I use a php-script to show the value of sys_language_uid (with $GLOBALS["TSFE"]->sys_language_uid), sys_language_uid always shows the value of 0 and thus everything always appears in the default-language

I use Typo3 3.7 with Apache 2 on Windows XP

Any help would be greatly appreciated

best regards,
