        The new architecture sounds like a good thing, but isn't there a way to
fall back to the old method if the logical device ID isn't found?
Perhaps with an error message asking the user to report the logical ID
to [EMAIL PROTECTED]? Of course I'm probably dreaming
here, but it seems to me that some kind of compromise should be
possible, since I tend to agree with Donald that "Working before + not
working now = broken," no matter how much "better" the broken version is
from the purity standpoint.
