I have some experience with 2008.8/9. Since I upgrades to 2008.9 I had
more difficulties but since I found out that settings doesnt show
current status of gps-power example if wake up from standby (its always
off no matter what shown).
I get a fix after approx. 2min when enter outside best not to close to
house wall. I also have external antenna which is more reliable and can
see and track more sattelites.
Once I thought that gpsd was not runnning when I had problems but since
I keep focus on it it always run (I expect the problem was power that
was off).

The most frequent problem I have now is that tangogps crash with segment
fault after run for a while. Didn't have time to investigate that.
