Hi,

they won't, since we will take all away from them they seem to have :)

Seriously, Oliver, I have tested your patch previously and the highest
symbol rate is even only 28000 at the Hotbird crowd, so for me no
difference.

Hartmut, didn't care for the clock, _very_ unlikely a problem,
but if you prefer to have it tested explicitly, I come back with some
report.

Cheers,
Hermann
