The manuals are proofread before release, but sometimes things slip through. We have issued a correction to this and it is on our website under both "Application Notes" and on the G540 product page. What do you mean we have reversed the pin out sequence on the DB25 connector? The pins on the connector are numbered near the appropriate hole.
The manual on the website is the most up to date, and was last revised this morning to include some of the corrections you mentioned.
The motherboards are being shipped out in the order they were requested. Where did you send the email to request a new one?
