Ok, the limited implementation (once again) verified. ;-)

Checked and found a package called libusb-dev, version 2:0.1.12-12
installed. Since no new packages have been installed after the last
session, this must have been around when the cvs version was
configured and compiled. I am not too familiar with things going on
under the hood inside these modern Linux systems, but is this how
it should be?

.gnokiirc, as modified:

port = 1
model = series40
initlength = default
connection = dku2libusb
use_locking = yes
serial_baudrate = 19200
smsc_timeout = 10
allow_breakage = 0
bindir = /usr/local/sbin/
TELEPHONE = 12345678
debug = on
rlpdebug = off
xdebug = off

Not yet there. But why was I trying with the AT model in the
first place? When plugged in, a device called /dev/ttyACM0 got
automatically created. Default .gnokiirc comments that:

> # port = /dev/ttyACM0
> # the last one will work only with AT driver.

Of course there is a little bit of a controversy between this logic
and what FAQ tells us: "model = series40, if you have Nokia
non-Symbian Series60 phone". (By the way, this led to ponderance
of the possibilities for a Series60, but nonetheless non-Symbian
phones to exist.) And, as we can see, the AT model got the phone
to identify in the first place.

So far 1 partial success and 1 better failure. Not bad - we are
proceeding and I still have an operational phone in my possession.
What should or could be done next?
