Ok, i also meant the navit developer instead of OM.
I know that this problem doesn't exist with normal pc's but it also
doesn't harm normal pc's. So i think it isn't a bad thing if you just
ask the navit developer if he/she integrates it into the source tree.
Until than i stick with version 1255 and your patch. But i see that the
navit code constantly updates so it would be nice to use the atual
version. :)
