Wicked Device RBBB shield does not work with Ethernet shield

Are there compatibility issues with the Wicked Device proto shield and the new Ethernet shield with microSD?
None of the example sketches for the Ethernet shield works on it. I also have a Duemilanove and all the examples run just fine with it.

Ok, after reviewing the schematic of the Arduino Ethernet shield V5, I found out that the ICSP 6 pin connector which is not available on the WickedDev is required for the shield to work. The SCK, MISO,MOSI and SS are floating on the ethernet shield without the 6 pin connector.
I jumpered the 6 pin connector on the ethernet shield to the appropriate pins ( pins 13,12,11 and 10) on the WickedDev and all seems well.
I guess on the next version of the proto board, this modification should be addressed.
