Sure, that would make the device scan function work.

I too have the problem of too much work, two young children, and not very
much time. So for me, giving you CVS access is by far the easiest
solution -- this way I don't have to integrate your patches myself!

That's fine -- most of the developers are pretty quiet most of the time,
and just perk up when something interesting happens (like a user finds a
bug in their code!).
Let me know your SourceForge user name (get one from
https://sourceforge.net/account/newuser_emailverify.php if you don't
already have one). If you have used CVS before you should find it trivial
to check in your code and changes. If not, please let me know.
