Hello again,

As soon as I have a pause day (should be this thursday), I'll take care 
of this and answer you. Hard times.

Feel free to push the packages if they fix other issues. I may consider 
doing a clean install of Mageia again if this is necessary, since the 
issue is really very very wierd and unique.
