Space Navigator support?

Hey all what is the status of the Spaceball patch? does it work with recent builds? I just compiled my first blender from cvs and tomorrow my space navigator comes. I contacted 3dconnexion and they said they have been working on a new sdk. I went to their development part and there was a driver for linux I think. Check it out. Or I will send it to you if want. I would love to have this working… especially since I just bought it to use with blender and now I am finding out there are problems using it.
