This kind of thing amazes me.  This bug is present to some extent in all 
operating systems.  There are several Linux fixes out, and all of them 
have issues...  There is no Vista fix I am aware of.  There is not even 
discussion of this in MAC forums, but it could be because Apple has not 
speced any of the problem drives yet.  However, this is all Ubuntu's 
fault...

There is an old quote attributed to Ronald Reagan, Harry S. Truman, and 
even Machiavelli... "It's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't 
care who gets the credit."  The converse of that is that you get nothing 
done if you waste all your time assigning blame.
