yes, I just tried to show that message with other nic.

yes, it's this one.

as usual, just rebuilt the axe module ... so I'm going to rebuild now.
this is a slow box, and might take a couple of hours. Will try to do it
also in a notebook running stable to speedup the process.

ok, I was also testing that other issue. Will separate things from now on.
no problem using stable from October 7, right ?
