I just want to reiterate: This is the first ever case of this being
I'd still bet a $100 (USD, which is quite cheap for me to do from the
Euro zone ;-) that it's the cable or something in the hardware itself.
(As repeatedly stated within the associated bugzilla entry.)
Fudging around with the kernel will at best hide the problem to make it
reappear in the most inconvenient timing situation, causing the maximum
loss of money these systems are capable of. (Murphy's Law applied.)
But, I can also radiate a very strong SEP field, in particular now that
I'm supposedly on vacation. But, just so that I can later do "neener
neener told you before" ;-)
