try using newhidups if possible as it will replace hidups.
the best is to retrieve the development cvs, call newhidups
in debug level 2 (ie "newhidups -DDDDD auto") and send back

make a small bit of work yourself, but it's quite easy and you won't
regret it ;-)

According to your results, I'll update the compatibility info...
