Comment(by proquar):

 I have the same problem.

 With the internal antenna I can wait hours and get no fix, on places where
 I usually receive ~8 satellites. Only thing I get is the time after about
 30 minutes.

 When I connect an external antenna I get a fix in less than 2 minutes,
 usually in less than 1 minute. I get the time after about 20 seconds.

 If I got a fix with an external antenna and switch back to the internal
 one, it still receives all satellites it has seen before and easily
 maintains it's fix and even recovers it when I take the Freerunner inside
 for a short time.

 I'm using a MP Freerunner, 900MHz-version, assembly was on 2008-06-18.
 (maybe it matters?)
