It does have a completely new Vortex/Boomerang driver. Unfortunately
it doesn't like my Vortex card which locks up after an indeterminate
period of time. I don't have the error messages to hand -- I'm at home
and the machine is at work.

I've built 2.0.32 with the 2.0.30 Vortex driver and it appears to work
fine, so I'm using that at the moment. However, if anyone can give me
any tips on stopping the Vortex locking up with 2.0.32, I'd be more
than pleased to hear them.
