I have three of them already so.. I'd like them to work. I consider the 
broken status temporary and the SiI3114 controllers a temporary

Yes, I corresponded with Søren privately and I am going to send him a 
Tyan S3950 kit, he was unable to reproduce the issue on his specific 
HT1000-based hardware.
