SubjectRe: USB remote control missing keycodes
Please do not hit reply and change the subject when you really want to 
create a new message. You apparently replied to to a message in the
thread "ext2 on flash memory". This causes your message to show up
under that thread, which is confusing to people reading that thread, and
will cause those ignoring that thread to never see your message.
