Hey, sorry I never replied!

I ended up staying late, so I didn't get to it that night... then I
sort of forgot about it.

Anyway, I can't replicate the issue.

Perhaps, though I'm more inclined to blame udev.

If I have a chance, I'll mess around more trying to replicate it.
I'll be pretty busy for at least the next week though...

Happy hacking,
