What I was trying to say was (and failing, it would seem), this is a two 
way street and if OMV cannot/will not help you, then it is hard to fix, 
especially now that Jeremy has pointed out that it cannot be fixed as 
is. Now this doesn't mean it can never be fixed, throw enough money and 
man hours at it and a workaround can probably be found, but this would 
undoubtedly entail OMV getting involved .

  At least I hope you can understand why some bug reports seem to take 
forever to get fixed, it is all down to priorities, the highest  
priority ones get fixed first, unless one annoys a user enough that they 
put their hand in their pocket and they pay someone to get it fixed.
