Yes, though I didn't check the logs, I couldn't read SMS messages;
they flashed briefly on the screen and disappeared each time I clicked
the message in the list of messages. I expect the best workaround (one
which I've read being told to people before) is to upgrade to a more
recent distribution such as 2008.8... and bite into a whole new set of
issues :-)
Ah, well, the wiki says prominently that the software is NOT in a
usable (for end-users) state, so issues are to be expected, and
patience exercised...
