Every cloud has a silver lining - They didn't have any 32mb xda's in stock, so they gave me a 64mb one. Hurrah!
This is now my third handset!
Other good things are it has 3.14 ROM, radio stack 4.08 - the splash screen to start up looks very XP'ish, and the default today screen is the XP Bliss wallpaper.
Apart from that, it looks pretty much the same. I'll let you know if anything else behaves differently.
Looks like I'll have to work out how to break the sound so that everyone can go and get a free upgrade!
