Hey Danny,

trust me I tried it on different networks (work and home) with different 
cables, docked and undocked on battery and without, with and without 
acpi, with different livecd's...

As for upgrading ... I'm thinking about it but I have to admit I'm not 
looking forward to the chore. 5.2.1 to 54 is quite the leap and I'm 
expecting a rough ride.

Thanx anyway :-)
