Tnx for the reply's.
The setups I use back home are all 1.23 based (some with heavy CP use) and I
have as good as no issues.
I've got an Alix board running 1.3B4, but its not in production yet.

But as I mentioned b4, I'm just on holiday in this hotel, further on I've
got nothing to do with it.
I already helped them setting up the CP and create a more or less decent

Kind regards
