Hi Samuel,

I don't mean to be stupid, but are you saying that you want me to do a 
git-pull and recompile the modules?  If so, I can do that.  I've 
actually noticed that the problem is worse than I thought.  My kernel 
built after the April pull (I think April 14 but I'm not positive on 
this) stops speaking after about 4 KB of text.  The 20080517 Debian 
modules also stop after the same amount of text.  The new Debian 
20080724 modules stop speaking after about 1 to 1.5 KB of text.  It's 
now at the point where I can't even read a 1500 byte email message with 
full headers.  Even README files that I could read completely before now 
stop speaking after about a screen full of text.  The computer on which 
I have the synthesizer and am doing my tests doesn't have the git 
repository so I'll have to clone from scratch, but I'll try it if it 
fixes the problem.
