I don't disagree with this behavior in principle, but Pawel should really try this out with some of the common applications to ensure it doesn't cause breakage (e.g. tvtime, xawtv, mythtv). Despite the fact that some drivers already do this, that doesn't mean that those drivers are necessarily the ones commonly used with these applications. Devin -- Devin J.
