If Everest always worked fine and now stopped working with NOVA, can I call
this a "bug in Everest"? I doubt it. I think Everest is (like any clean GEM
program) written to use GEM, but does not support any NOVA feature directly
(again, I think). So if such a program stops working correctly, I believe
it's a bug somewhere else than in that program.

I have read some articles in about that 'CAB problem' - that might
be another case where the problem is not in the running program, but in the
underlying drivers...

But I have NOVA for just two days, so I can't write judgements (yet)...

BTW, anyone needs a corner clock that supports NOVA resolutions? :-))
