The phone never registers with the network (does using 2007.2)
My attempts to manually restart qpe (type qpe in the terminal) end up with an unusable display.

i think that is a normal behaviour, becouse if you tray to kill qpe you got an alert which message exactly the same as in in the ps aux, and also if you type app-restarter --help you can see that, that is only a proces to keep running qpe and restarting it if it crash or fail.

but thre are problems which connecting to the GSM network. in my case i cloud recieve calls but i can't make a coll becouse of an alert (i can't remember the alert message and don't have om2008.8 on FR but i'll check it morning) ... and that is a poblem. tray icon (the one, left of battery icon) looks like phone is out of the range of GMS transmitter. i've tray which packages form dayli-feed repo and have same problems.

my friend has also the same problem (which connecting to GMS network) on Om2008.8 (we both leave in Poland in same city)

Not the same problem - I am not killing qpe - this message is there on startup!

I get no "alert message" - the phone just doesnt even register with the network. If I run qpe manually, it still doesnt register - just gives messages about a "Mux being unavailable". The display problem I had with qpe was because it needed backgrounding.

No you missunderstand this. app-restarter is a process running the whole time which checks if qpe is running. If it's not, app-restarter shows the above string in an error-message and asks if it should restart qpe.

So seeing this process in ps aux is no bug, it's a feature ;)

Just check if qpe is running with: ps aux|grep qpe and you'll see it is there.
