BRLTTY does not start automatically since upgrade of my system

Hi all,

Since my last mail i've tried several things to get my braille display 
starting automatically again.

First i thought that brltty might not start automatically. So i added it 
to my  /etc/rc.local
After rebooting i issued the command
ps -A | grep -i ".*brltty"
to see if it is running. To my suprise it was even running twice :-)
So i removed it from the rc.local again.

IN the next step i tried removing and reinstalling the package. When i 
started aptitude remove brltty it complained about brltty-x11 is broken. 
After confirming it removed the packages (brltty and brltty-x11). Now i 
installed brltty and brltty-x11 again.
But unfortunatelly without any success..

Currently i have installed brltty 4.1. Would it make sense to install a 
newer version of it? And how could i get it?
I'd prefer to use no testing repositories or something like this bc i 
use my ubuntu on a daily basis ...

Any help / new ideas would be appreciated!

Best wishes Marion
