Well, you could always file a bug report about it. The developers
would then (presumably) tell you all relevant information, and perhaps
even fix your problem ! :-)
However don't ask me what package to file bug reports against....
though I guess the remote must be handled by a kernel module, so you
could file the bug against the kernel you are using.
