the problem is much older than the bankrupt of cbm. Mark Tomlinsen
never got a manufactorer id and so he sold his crosslink board
with 2011/3. He tried it in newzealand and in australia as far as 
i know and this was 2 years ago. 

It is of course not a big problem as it seems that there will be not 
so many new manufactorers enter business to produce ZorroII cards
in future...
