Ok, i've an ADB keboard... but i don't get any error from pommed (except 
the stuff about LMU, but is it related only to the cdrom, right?), the 
full log is attached.

There is anything that i can try without switching back to pbbuttonsd?
Some sort of experimental patch or things like that, it should not be 
impossible since pbbuttonsd does that... i'll offer cputime and 
tests :D
