SMS Notification broken in Koolu beta 7

I've posted about this once before but didn't have much time to  
investigate until now.
Tonight, though, I came across something that has me pretty sure that  
there's something broken in Koolu Beta 7 WRT
how incoming SMSes are detected and notification is handled.

In short, the symptom is that when running Koolu Beta 7, text messages  
sent to the FR seem to never arrive.
They never get bounced back to the sender either, nor do they silently  
appear in my SMS inbox, they just sort of seem to disappear off into  
the ether.

I have the Adafruit SIM reader and plugged the SIM from my FR into it.  
There were 9 text messages
on the SIM from each of several different occasions over the past week  
or two when I've sent an SMS
to the FR  at random times. In each instance, it seems like the  
message never arrives, but
apparently they have been received and stored on the SIM, but that  
isn't being picked up on by Android.

So, some sort of notification/ event handling is broken in how Koolu  
notifies WRT incoming SMSes.
I've looked around on a couple Android forums and there seems to be a  
few others having this problem
but no immediate solution or workaround and there are others who say  
that they're not having this problem.

I'm posting what I've found here to bump this topic up some and  
hopefully get it some more attention.
I'm going to try to take a look at the source(s) this weekend and see  
if I can figure out what's going on, but was also hoping
that somebody else might have seen this and know if there's a fix or
