With those fixes in place now, would it make sense to do a mass bug
reply/set to "needsinfo" after alpha-3 to have people confirm that
their bug is still present on alpha3? This will probably allow us to
close a lot of them, and time out the ones without response, and might
be much faster than waiting for all reporters to close them by

I have run them for pretty much entire Karmic without a lot of
problems, and if there are some, it's easy to temporarily revert back
to the Karmic version. I'd like to ask more people to run it,
especially the folks which do have video problems still.
