This continues to puzzle the crap out of me.  It's rock-solid here 
on two different devices.

I have noticed that on a 24x80 window the PPS bars can sometimes be
difficult to spot because the visual cycle time beats with the packet
window height - they go by really fast and all that's visible is the
middle of the following report.  Try watching gpsmon run in a really
tall window, ideally one with enough height to display two entire
reporting cycles.

I believe it's working in direct mode - if you know differently, tell me.
I'm going to try to get it working in client mode, that's the highest
priority item left on my pre-3.10 list.
