 Running Debian with Kernel 2.6.24-20081103.git7172ec57-1 I have the
 following problem reading the accelerometers.

 -when the device is lying still /dev/input/event2 and 3 is producing
 -as soon as the is moved event2 & 3 are no longer producing any output.
 -when the device is lying still again the device is producing output

 I tested it with a simple
 hexdump /dev/input/event2

 Some people on #openmoko-debian were able to reproduce this bug.

 This problem doesn't occur running the Om2008.9 kernel.
