No, it wasn't disabled the 17th (afaik). It was disabled in 2.6.27-4.6 which was published 2008-09-24:
True, it's not a very consistent problem. My guess is that some BIOS routine in some(!) ThinkPads (and maybe others) is automatically recovering the EEPROM at boot/POST time or that this bug does not appear to show up on some specific hardware or configuration we haven't identified yet. All speculations.
