As we already got several release-candidates its very unlikely that the 
patch will make it into 2010.04.

And to be honest i am not sure if this is something which should be
added to the default grml-quickconig as it is IMHO not as often used
as for example changing the keyboard layout or starting X.

Would you mind to add your patch and problem description to our
bugtracking system <http://bts.grml.org> so others can benefit from it
and use your patch?
