Yes, I have tried powered hub also...even made well regulated power supply
myself so my guess is power was not problem...by the way I have a feeling
that usb problems have been less since I updated Raspberry's os. (But audio
receive quality is still a bit poor)

Gunnar, By the way... maybe it is my bat english but I am little confused
about your instruction. I have download 1.5.10
From http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/

But it is executable file, when I try to execute it, pi gets busy for a
while but nothing seems to happend. If I try executing from root terminal,
it says "binary file cannot be executed"... so I cant find any  "jpskmail
lib"  so I can not  open javapskmail.jar :D I feel stupid :D

Should this installer be runnable and make some directory containing
those javapskmail.jar
etc. ? (I have made permission to run this file.) This is what I meant, I
can not find 1.5.10 jar files.

I can see previous version I have tried while ago have been jpskmail
installer 1.6.10, it do exactly same, nothing:)
