Right now, for 2.4.1, I'd rather have the patch to just do the same as
2.2.x. We can figure it out better when we get a better idea of exactly
what the bug is, and whether there is some other work-around, and whether
it is 100% certain that it is just those two controllers (maybe the other
ones are buggy too, but the 2.2.x tests basically cured their symptoms too
and peopl ehaven't reported them because they are "fixed").
