Hi Chris,

I am answering myself on this one.

It never occurred to me that this actually could be the intended behaviour,
but now that I read page on troubleshooting in the Wiki I see that the
release and debug versions actually have different file layouts. So the
status with the ARM port is that it seems to work just fine. I will install
the release version and let it run for a while.
