Wasn't your first email bitching about how that it _wasn't_ in the setup
program? You're talking about a completely different issue, now.

The code's identical for all types of cards. It'd be pretty dumb to have
different functions to figure out which channel's next for different types of
cards, now, wouldn't it?

Send in a patch, too, if you think something's broken. I've already verified
that things work as I would expect them to if you insist on having channel
numbers that aren't numeric. The ordering may be a bit weird, but that's
because it's sorting strings, not numbers.
