Hi Jon,

Hmmm, good one. I just checked and it is version 0.50.

I'll give that a shot. It's quite interesting that it would work with
fbsd 5.2.1 (and earlier) and not with fbsd 5.3, but it might indeed be
the culprit.

Either way: after the weekend I shall let you guys know what the culprit
was. :)

Cheerz and 'ave a good weekend!
