That is strange. I was under the impression that the port value is
ignored (when using newhidups), and that specifying it should not

socket naming scheme? Or was the problem here that the user changed
the configuration file without restarting the driver, effectively
causing a driver mismatch? Perhaps it should be documented. -- Peter
