Still torturing PSKmail....

This time I worked with gpsd
It did not function properly but after few trials I learned that have to simply 
restart gpsd to make it work. 

From terminal: 

 rm /var/run/gpsd.sock

That will stop whatever is not working and next starting again :

gpsd /dev/ttyASM0

After that I started xgps which nicely shewed me all data from GPS. 

Later I reconfigurated my jPSKmail client with  Preferences/Edit/Devices -> 
marked Use gpsd

Proudly I was able to see my position in APRS window, the problem - Longitude 
stay EAST !!
I see data out of GPS in xgps and it is correct, but in jPSKmail I am in 
Eastern hemisphere. Please look at the attached picture. 
I am affraid that "minus" is missing somwere in the code.  

Well, anybody has any suggestions??
I keep torturing PSKmail......
