Unfortunately I don't think I fully understand the problem.  As such I
have to rely on others to get this fixed the right way.  Until then at
least there is a workaround.  :)

In the long run I believe the problem will be fixed correctly.  I am
sure there are many different priorities that the people that know how
this works are having to deal with and since this problem does have a
workaround it most likely does not warrant a very high rating in things
that need to be fixed.  (I personally would put wireless issues way
ahead of this one, but that is my preference <GRIN>)
