Well, it is more that not being able to exit an app with Ctrl-C is
.... unusual, at least for me. Don't worry about it, I'll just update
the wiki.

It started with me discovering this page:

and discovering that libgsmd-tool didn't exist  in fso. :)

I didn't know about this one. This is the same as the one you get with
at+cgmr, right?
It certainly looks like it, even if the output is a bit, er...
root at om-gta01:~# mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd
/org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.Device.GetInfo
/org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device: GetInfo ->
dbus.Dictionary({dbus.String(u'imei'): dbus.String(u'354651011308881',
variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'model'): dbus.String(u'Neo1973 GTA01
Embedded GSM Modem', variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'revision'):
dbus.String(u'HW: GTA01Bv4, GSM:
variant_level=1), dbus.String(u'manufacturer'):
dbus.String(u'FIC/OpenMoko', variant_level=1)},

It is worth noting that ther is a space between "...GSM/Device" and
