Comment 2 John W. Linville 2008-07-31 17:35:37 UTC
Can you try -97?  Someone else reported that it resolved this issue.

Comment 3 John W. Linville 2008-08-19 18:49:59 UTC
Closed due to lack of response...I'm pretty sure this is fixed.

Comment 4 Phil Mayers 2008-08-20 11:35:22 UTC
Yes, sorry for not replying - for reference, the -97 update did indeed correct the problem
