That's not entirely true. You _could_ attempt to debug it and work
how/why it behaves differently on F7. But you've little chance of
actually _fixing_ it. You might get away with running it in a chroot
with the bits of FC3 you need, perhaps.

If you use non-free software, you should _expect_ it to break.

Have you tried the GDI driver?
