Cool!  Can you send the context diff as Ralf suggested as soon as you can?
I ask because I have some time this week, but things will get busy next 
week when I'm back at work.  The context diff will make it a *lot* quicker 
to integrate the code...

I think so...

I'll test it on the 5000's...

I'll see how it goes... I think I have enough documentation to fix this
for the 5000's.  I've just got Ralf's experimental booting again
on my 5000, so I'm keen to throw your code into that.
