Well, 4.1.0 stock source has many Alpha-related patches that should
help the situation, so the latest test deb for 4.1.0 from Branden
should be better.

Also, I sent many of those patches back-ported to 4.0.3, to
Chris/Branden and I think they made it into some test packages that
used them, but not sure.
