Sorry it took a bit of time to respond but I've been on vacation and now am 
recovering from the flu.

I released OS11 as a 1st build with the new buildsystem.  There are still some 
issues which need to be addressed but I wanted to get a new build with updated 
kernel etc out for testing.  

I did some local testing with powe rmanagement disabled by default and the 
issue persisted.  It only went away when I went into the control panel and 
manually enabled and then disabled power management.  

I truly wish I had the hours to devote to tracking down and fixing all these 
issues, however the $DAYJOB along with commute time keeps me away from home 
for 13 hours a day, and the $DAYJOB is not in the industry, where I could work 
on this on the side, but it does pay the bills.

It is my hope to get the remaining issues addressed in short order so a final 
release can be made.  We do have a time constraint since F11 the base of our 
releases will go "End of Life" in June.

I appreciate all the testing you and others are doing and would welcome any 
assistance in tracking down and exterminating these final few issues.
