I have.  Didn't manage to properly isolate the problem, but my gut
feeling is that Andy's patch to disable SD when acquiring the first
fix does only that for, well, the first fix.  *Apparently*, there are
circumstances where running agpsgui once, getting a fix, exiting and
restarting afterwards, doesn't result in the FR getting a new fix.  As
you said, rebooting solves the problem, but suspend/resume cycles
don't seem to reliably fix it.
