Tell me about it...I couldn't believe I was getting an error concerning an 
option that wasn't set.  I'm guessing like you, that it's being automatically 
set somewhere... 
The weird thing is that everything was fine with the previous release, 
which I would think means something was changed concerning the code 
with the driver.  Should this be submitted as a bug? 
Hopefully, like you suggested, someone familiar with the code of that 
driver might peer in and make a suggestion.
