Is Google Voice cracking down on Canadian subscribers (wrt Obi200)?

Tried to use Google Voice via Obi200 today, as usual, and failed...
Obi200 reports a failed registration:

Thanks.. Hm.. possible.. i normally disable automatic updates, but forgot what exactly I did for my Obi...

Anyway, glad it was a false alarm. Perhaps mods can delete this topic in order not to pollute the forums
(unless there is some informative value in it ;) )
