I've had quite the opposite experience: GPS works more reliably than 
ever with 2008.9.

I presume you've had GPS fixes with the same device in the past?

I presume you updated the kernel as well as the root FS?

Did you try with/without an SD card inserted? Now that I think of it, I 
didn't have an SD card installed.
