well, envy me, too :-)

on my way home i went to a known good spot and started agpsui without much

echo 1 > the file  
grep GPGGA /dev/ttySAC1

almost immediately (ok, less than 1min) meaningfull lines begun to appear.

fixes after <1min.

that leaves at least two explanations:
- today was an exceptionally good day for germany, astronomically speaking
- the communication between the gsp chip and the gps applications has some
