Friends, I really do appreciate all you do and all that you
give of yourselves to Ubuntu, Linux, and free software.

However, that said this is what frustrates users and causes
them not to bother submitting bug reports.  This seems like
trial and error attempts at bug fixing and what the users
would like is for the piece of code that is causing the problem
to be identified and fixed instead of this try this kernel and
see if the problem persists.  It is as if that no one seems to
know what changed in the new kernel that might have an
impact on the problem.

Please, pleases don't get me wrong.  I really do appreciate all
who are looking into to this.  Thank you.  On many bug reports
it will take weeks and weeks just to get anyone to read them
and respond.

Best Regards and Utmost Respect,
