I am experiencing a similar problem with Nova and the KCT card. The
people I work with think it's a problem with the Windows NT/2k scheduler
and the way Nova interacts with the card. So I will only leave the Nova
rotator interface enabled during passes.

If anyone has a better workaround or a solution, I'm interested in
hearing it.
