Hedley: I could only wish. :-) Considering Canonical's investment in
this laptop and my time, I really assumed it would have been flagged as
critical 2+ years ago. Apparently in spite of the fact that everyone
knows what's wrong, no one has been able to fix it in that amount of
time.

Leann: It'll probably be after the new year now before I can test it,
but I will. My ongoing physical disability and lack of income is taking
it's toll on my stock of blank CDs. If anyone wants to donate some, I'd
gladly accept. :-)

Out of curiosity - It's been said many times that the misbehaving bit of
software we're dealing with has been updated/fixed and it hasn't. This
may be a silly question, but is someone actually trying to fix this
issue or is development just pushing forward and hoping it'll get ironed
out in the process? A apologize if I sound a bit jaded, but literally -
we've known what's wrong and how to fix it for over two years now and it
just never seems to get done. Perhaps what sounds simple to a non-
developer is really a big issue in an area that's difficult to mess with
- which would obviously explain why the fix is taking so long. Again -
not mad or irritated or anything - just curious. Ubuntu is still my
beloved distro and I promote it locally every chance I get! :-)

P.S. - would adding the current development name in the bug's
title/subject make it a little more visible after all these years? I
opened the bug, but I'm never sure which bits I should be
adding/changing.
