No worries :-).  If this is unintentional I'll see if I can find the  
required setting, although just waiting for a new release would be  
fine too because that version works fine.

I'm available for testing, although I cannot promise prompt response  
because the actual device is located in an office I visit at most once  
a week.


P.S. Thanks for working on a Python release for Windows CE, having  
Python there is very convenient.
