Haha, compared to "how many products has a big phone company shipped
before fixing their hw bugs?", a neglible amount, and those to HC fans
and supporters that know they are beta testers.

Well, then it's a big issue for you, which of course is crappy. But
that's just it, it's a huge issue for *you*. In the grand scheme of
things it's a bug, and a bug Joerg has told us to be patient about, and
one where there will be a fix for. I'd just wait for the sw + hw fixes,
and see what the result is.
