List template not working when used in at different farm - Lookup Columns will caus trouble

Be aware that you re-create Lookup columns when creating a new list based on a list template created on a different server/farm. They will not work because the source list used in the look up column does not exist in the destination farm. It is obvious after you have done the mistake and found the cause of "the disaster". Quick and dirty may sometimes become very dirty ... :-(
