I sorta know...
Thanks for your advice -- as you might have seen, I've been actually trying to help with testing/debugging as I had that particular hardware at hand, knowing how it feels without a sample at hand. Guess being rude and rejecting such help from peers is part of being a high-profile developer of yet another RH clone... (and not forgetting/forgiving part of me :-/)
So, my sincere wishes of luck to users of this cent-class project (have quite a few friends among those, btw) :-)
