Oh dang - that was me not paying attention. I tested the patch, but
since I had just previously downloaded all my data from my dive computer
I only tested that it displayed what I wanted to see, not if it still

I guess it would be safe to clean up the "device" name after it was
selected to search for the pattern " (" and drop everything starting
from there...
