Pegasus DMFC: No Backlash setting [SOLVED]

Very strange.  I just tried, and even deleted the xml file in ~/.indi.  I get the message 'BACKLASH must be enabled first'.  But no buttons to enable it in the INDI control window.  So I directly edited the "Pegasus DMFC_config.xml".  It does have the entries FOCUS_BACKLASH_TOGGLE and FOCUS_BACKLASH_STEPS, and I set the TOGGLE to INDI_ENABLED=On and INDI_DISABLED=Off, plus a value for the STEPS.
The message is gone, but still the INDI control tab does not show any backlash related info (nor for the REVERSE setting).

Has kstars it's own database regarding drivers and what settings they provide?

But then again, I again ran 'indiserver indi_dmfc_focus' and then (in another window) indi_getprop |grep -i back.  No match :(

FWIW, attached the log of my tries with debug enabled.

An addition. Just now realized the -vvv switch for indiserver. Running it with that, the polling info that gets printed out that way shows

 INDI_DISABLED='On'
Still no mention of it in indi_getprop.
I also tried blindly an
indi_setprop "Pegasus DMFC.FOCUS_BACKLASH_TOGGLE.INDI_ENABLED=On"
, but that only reports (after a substantial timeout)
No Pegasus DMFC.FOCUS_BACKLASH_TOGGLE.INDI_ENABLED from localhost:7624

I also tried with "On" instead of "INDI_ENABLED", with the same result. Not sure if it is related that the working ones (LED, Encoders) use On/Off instead of INDI_(DIS)ABLED....

I have got stable 1.9.1 and those settings are not here on mine either…..but that is the least of my issues, as nothing works on it for me, even on a brand new SM image…. :(

Just compiled latest git, including Jasems Patches of the last  days (48dcd0023a2d and 6337561bbc).

With those, BL and REVERSE settings are there again, jay!
