yes, this is another known issue (with quite high priority) on my list.
FSO based images used ffalarms and atd for alarm. I need to investigate
how to install and make it work on debian. So this is rather
unimplemented feature that bug.

another known one probably trivial bug. You can use terminal and use
iwconfig as a workaround for now.

This is interesting - i just tested it and got a bit different but still
incorrect behaviour. I recieved just the first part of SMS. So i can at
least somehow reproduce it and take a look.

If you run tangogps using QX then it shouldnt go to suspend. I will
implement it also for other apps launched from QX - this should be quite
simple. I dont know how hard would it be to do it in wifi dialog and in
other places where it's needed.

Yes, i know this issue too. Didnt have time to take a look at it yet.
Reboot solves it for now.

I am not happy with any virtual keyboard too - so if none else comes
with solution i will work on this when time comes.

Me too :)

Thanks for report. All those bugs are on my list so hopefully sooner or
later they could be fixed.
