Yep, this works, thanks! :)

In response to Arne: It's really from navit, I/we didn't put it there...

I'm now seeing a message telling me: WARNING **: gps_open failed for 
'gpsd://localhost'. Retrying in 10 seconds. Have you started gpsd?

so I tried:
root at om-gta02:/usr/share/navit# /etc/init.d/gpsd start

and got:

Starting gpsd: No  GPS device, aborting gpsd startup. Check 

with a bit more investigation, the AGPS Gui works just fine, as does GPS 
Sight (although I have to run AGPS Gui and get a fix before running GPS 
Sight), but TangoGPS is saying "No GPS Found". I can cat /dev/ttySAC1 
and I get data... have I broken it somehow? Any thoughts?

to OP: This patch is great! scrolling is *MUCH* faster! Great work! :)
