thank you for these suggestions.I will watch these bugreports. In 
particular I totally missed bug 297385, which is exactly the same thing 
except that I did not have the issue back in Hardy times.

I do have backports modules installed, but it does not help.

Either way THANK YOU for the very constructive dev-flaming-free reply :)

It is sad to see all the flames on the mailing list. If only those 
people were using the same energy to try to solve the issues they have! 
Or to ask for a refund from Canonical. I dont see what's so constructive 
about saying "this place is going down". But I guess some things on the 
  Internet will never change.

I am also very annoyed by some things in 9.10 and NetworkManager makes 
me want to kill small animals(Koalas?), but on the other hand 9.10 gets 
some other things work out of the box like my 3G modem. It took me half 
a day to get it to work on 9.04. Also my built-in webcam seems to be 
"found", though still not working too well. Maybe for the next 
release...  It only used to work when I manually had patched and loaded 
the r5u870 driver to flip the image. But i dont have the time to deal 
with this now, and i dont really need it.
