Thats a good point,,,I have not tried this with the ports on other than
the Q700 and Q650, but I will. I expect it will act the same way tho'
because I don't think the ports are initialized at all during boot. I
don't even think the script that should run, gets called, and I don't
know why. It is there, and someone else said its in the right place
(that file I mentioned in the /etc/rc.boot) SHOULD execute, but does not.
I know that because the echo lines are not printed at boot time. Never.
