Quick 5 second feedback:

- works on 8320 w/ (only tried TCP so far)


- doesn't upgrade 1.7.3, installs alongside it; it appears 1.7.3 uses "midpssh2" as the module name and you're using "midpssh" -- this causes it not to upgrade, and any previous settings are not carried over (to my knowledge the RMS store is based on the specific module name)

- when entering a new session config, the Caps is on for the first letter; this should not be (even though it's normal for BB in general) since your hostname and username are 99.9% of the time lowercase

- it's 2008, SSH2 should be the default not SSH1

I'd love if somehow we could now put a private RSA/DSA key on the device and use ssh keys for logging in.... one for the feature list.

A minor UI enhancement would be to get rid of the menu that pops up when you click on things with the trackball and go directly to the Select action. (i.e. Sessions -> menu -> select -> (session) -> menu -> select). What a royal pain - the click of trackball should always do the usual Select action like most BB apps, if the user wants a menu they click the Menu key.
