Last night I tried my custom kernel without EFI support, but I am afraid
I still report the same problems.

When using Gtkpod I can read the iTunes database fine, but when I try to
export tracks, it quickly fails. Does it work properly on yours?

I read again everything on the launchpad bug and there are people there
that report that if they plug their iPod directly to their computer,
instead of using an USB hub then the problems goes away. I am not using
a hub, however, my laptop (Sony Vaio 505 series) has two USB ports, one
on each side of the computer. Is it possible that it has a something
like an internal hub inside, which is messing me up?

Time to google some more...
