I guess all that's required is periodically testing new snapshots.

Have you removed the jumper from pins 1-2 of J1? You can check using the
following commands under 177-Bug...
FFF40088 67800609 .....
The key value is bit0 in the above value (67800609). If set, the jumper
has been removed. If clear, you still need to remove the jumper.
If this doesn't fix the problem, I'll need a day or two to look into it
