Please test: pmud 0.7-2 in unstable (was: Re: pmud 0.7-1)

Could all of you who experienced funny trackpad behavior please test the
new -2 package from unstable? (I've not bumped the version to -3 because
the installer hadn't run yet, I just overwrote the files in incoming)

For the 3400 problems, I need a clearer idea what goes wrong with the IDE
interface on wakeup - I recall some problems with setting multiword DMA 2
on some machines after wakeup, was that on the 3400? 

Ben, do you happen to know which package your trackpad tool belongs to?
I've added a 'show' option to make it report the current settings to help
catch problems with the trackpad state restore in future.

That's why I said I can't imagine speeding it up. The whole wakeup
notifier call chain would have to be split into one part to run immediatly
on wakeup, and another to run in some task queue or botton half. Yuck. 

Does MacOS X not run on the 3400 then?

Good luck with that - I'd say that's a higher priority job than threaded
wakeup :-) We can float that idea on l-k just for fun. 
Does the sleep function on the Pismo stop memory refresh (or slow refresh
down too much)?
