    I don't think this works with a bug so clear-cut as this one.

    On the USB front it's so hard to find any users with meaningful
    bug reports that I apply fixes for singular users, if they make
    broader sense. How do you know that that one user you mentioned is
    not a representative of countless IBM minions who clang their chains,
    pull Token Ring cables and cry in their dungeons...
