I understand completely. I did not send the message because of
impatience, but to make sure that you (and others) were aware that the
patch of 9/15 did not fix the problem.

If I get some time, I'll try looking at it, but my C skills are rusty
and my familiarity with hardware (let alone BIOS) pretty much ends
with DEC Alphas and VAXen. I've been living in the network world for
10 years and can talk in detail about the design of forwarding
engines, but they have little in common with PCs.
