You are absolutely right.

I'll look at it ASAP.

They are working fine here (*) on three boards (2 x labeled
"IceCube+", 1 x "LITE5200").
(*) - some PCI cards cause problems, for example a 3C905C card; I'm
pretty sure it is a hardware issue, but so far it has not been
confirmed by Motorola yet; for USB, you may have to short L15
("below" the USB connector)

Yes, I know of some cases. But too many things are failing on MGT5100

The software required `Windows 95 or better', so I installed Linux.
