Sorry you got so frustrated with Intrepid. The final release just came
out today, though, so maybe the fix is in the final release. As I
remember, you did state you didn´t see any issues in trying the Release
Candidate because you did NOT THINK any changes would be made. There
have been several updates since then. On the other hand, perhaps since
Hardy 8.04 is a Long Term Release, you are better off with it.

good luck,
