Do you have any info on the "version 8" 82559 part (I assume you have
access to docs online or otherwise)? New MBs that we just got in have this
part and the messages have resurfaced.
If you could point me at what to look for I'll try and tackle it and
forward the info to you. without docs its a futile effort.
