Well I had the previously released qtopia (24/07 maybe), and did opkg
upgrades often (including kernel updates)

Since the last update (08/08), well... I can't really tell about sms
and gsm reliability difference since I did not used it enough.
Just that I lastly experienced a bit more provider switching (because
of unsufficient reception), and that may be related to poorer gsm
reception/handling by freerunner...

Now that I have came back to a "clean" install of 0808 image, I will
retest reception of sms/calls while sleeping...
