It does not talk specifically about Netra X1, while there is supposedly
very few machines involved. If the string "Netra X1" was in this chapter
I would never have reported this. Same thing if #360699 had been closed.
Now it is closed, but I feel it should not be as this is not definitive
a solution, as Lenny will probably still have the same problem.

But thanks for your help anyway.
