Who build it and can you talk to them?

Oh, I was talking about the expectation you have about the state of the
IMC assuming that you are somewhat involved in the development of the
system (aren't you?). The IMC does not need to be active for a working
system (AFAIK), but to me it seems like it is active but somewhat
misconfigured. Let's see what Rudolf says about it. He know it way
better than me.

In my version of the patch you need to increase the initial value of 'i'
in mbox_wait_ack. Similar in Rudolf's version, but it counts up instead.
The value is in milliseconds.
