It didn't happen at all with RC1? There were uploads of brltty in
between, but they mattered only to xbrlapi and grub. I can also
reproduce the "no-detection-at-all" issue with it.
The new release of brltty was indeed introduced only in October, but the
Cebra driver itself hadn't really changed since brltty 5.0. Wheezy
however had only brltty 4.4, which didn't have the Cebra driver.
I'm just thinking: perhaps we should exchange the cebra and handytech
drivers? Will the ht driver accept a real cebra device? If not, that
could work. I don't know the market share, but perhaps the inversion
makes sense anyway?
