This is the first report of this that we've had. Is anyone else having 
stability problems with 0.70?
Unfortunately I can't think of anything to suggest that would help your 
problem. When the holux 236 comes up I just take that to mean trouble, 
there's been lots of reports about this receiver doing bad things. If it's 
worked for you before then I don't see what would have changed. The only 
thing I can think of to try would be if you back up your loadstone databases 
and then remove loadstone completely from the phone. Then do a fresh 
reinstall and see if that helps. This shouldn't be necessary but you never 
know, maybe something's gone flakey somewhere.
