bug fixes are definitely welcome for the final 2.0.5...
so don't hesitate to backport theses change.

More generally, I'll start a discussion about the driver polling rate
(2 sec) which was accurate with the dumb and old smart units, but
which is really too high for recent / verbose units (that also support
an interrupt / notification mechanism, allowing to lower the polling
rate, while not missing events).

thanks for the MGE support during my vacation ;-)
