wrong setting...
Was this 8.2 an updated 8.1 or did it change its identity by accident?

I never heard of a problem like that, but i also never do updates, i 
always do fresh installs, just keeping my $HOME and /usr/local, which are
on different partitions/drives/machines.

you could give fou4s http://fou4s.gaugusch.at a try, it works fine for

goot luck :-)
