ACK all the way.

I will give a Logitech bluetooth keyboard+mouse to the developer who can
solve this problem, or I will donate the value of that keyb+mouse to a
charity of his/her choice. That is an incentive of about 100€ if I'm not
mistaken. If there are others who are also willing to donate, I'll set up
a pledge site to get this bug fixed.
