I know, but I don't think that it should be a kernel issue, since 
kernels working in Qtopia don't act properly in GTK version.

I know... It what worries me. I've not found similar reports btw...

It's so strange, btw... I'm using ASU since hours and I'm using also 
many Om or GTK applications and they works... I really can't understand 
why all this happen :(.
Isn't there a way to log what is happening? Enabling syslog didn't help 
(maybe I've used a wrong way?).

However I'll contact my vendor, also if actually I can't ask for it (I'm 
leaving in few days).
