No problem! I'm glad it's working. The documentation has not been
updated recently, and it's on my list of things to do. Unfortunately, so
are a lot of other things. :) I've added it to my documentation fix it
list, I'll make sure to get this added to the documentation as soon as I
find some free time.

Most people aren't hit by the bug because when udev is installed, it
warns that these options will cause problems. You got lucky I guess! :)

Glad you stuck with it!
