As far as I can see there's not much more you can do.  I think you're
looking at a real driver bug that needs reporting and fixing.

Andrew.

Thanks again Andrew.

Alrighty then. To be honest I'm not entirely certain how to do that. As is, what info to collect and to what project would I submit said info!?  Sorry. I have little experience in submitting bugs but I'd like to contribute what I can...Sure someone will encounter this that could use the reference. Obviously I wouldn't mind having the fix myself as well ;)

Thanks
Phil
