Thanks, Danny.  Without knowing what issues Heiko was talking about (and I 
still don't) I was uncertain whether to downgrade.

The "unstable with TelliCast and satellite signal loss" is something to do 
with the satellite software, I believe, but is not completely 
reproducible, and not something I would want the development team wasting 
their time on right now.
