Problem with remote gps

We have 2 computers on the boat, one whit a USB-GPS and gpsd, that both computers connects to.

The localhost connection works fine, but the other computer says "no gps device" in debug output, whitout reson.

more detaljed, its the row: "if (m_gps_data->devices.list[0].activated < 1.0)" that disable the gps, if i ignore that, then it works fine, anyone got an ide how to dig deeper in this?

Made a workaround patch, to be able to use opencpn until the problem is solved:

That make it possible to bypass this problem by adding ForceGPSDActive=1 under [Settings] in the config-file
