Good catch, this is fixed now.

Great, one ifdef less :)

Can you please explain what the difference between these two are?
Some compiler version specific thing?

Yes, we did dyntick originally for ARM OMAP and 770. I don't think
I have any power who Nokia will be giving the discount developer
770's for though :) I think you have to apply on some webpage...
Naturally you can try to use me as a reference, but I don't know
if it helps :)

Cheers,

Tony
