I suffer the same problem in 9.04 (never had a problem before, so this
a massive regression).

I filed a bug report about it over a month ago... nobody has even just
acknoledged the bug... they are probably waiting for the launchpad
robot to expire the bug automatically. That's an easy way to "fix"
bugs, wait for Launchpad to delete the bug report and oh, problem gone !
Arf arf... :-/

If you add a comment to my bug report, maybe it will get the ball

Vince, long lost faith in bug reporting...
