Interesting as that is not identified on the qualcomm web pages.  I  
saw a reference to 4.1.0 and went digging through the qualcomm ftp  
site.   Found 4.1a2 in the beta directory.  Its dated last summer.   
It does have the code for the homedir issues in it.  4.0.9 did not.   
What is the status of the port going to be with no one assigned to it?
