[olpc-help] SISUSBVGA - (re)compiling should not make a difference, should it?

I did not compile the module and the kernel. I am on build 656, and I simply modprobe'd the binary (can't remember if i had to download them or not, at this point). my sisusb_drv.so is in the directories below:
It /seems/ to be properly installed (certainly, the module loads (automatically, on hotplugging!), without errors), and, as I wrote earlier, I am getting /some/ life in the external monitor -- just not a clone.
Yet, perhaps it's not fully functional precisely because I did not compile my own? That seems improbable in my mind, but I may be wrong.
Can someone please help us get this to work?
