Google turned up many reports, from Ubuntu, LKML, etc., on various
hardware (previous links).  Grml beta pool is far too small and sporadic
to expect multiple corroborations.  I myself only tested 1.0rc2 on a
whim, thinking the bug was already fixed, planning other work.

The test hardware from my 0.9-7 bug report is completely documented
there, all normal and common (Asian MSI board using nVidia chips).  Grml
could document its own test hardware on the wiki to give an idea of

Laptop users also need USB devices.  A bug that hurts USB is going to
hurt them too.

It may be a grml judgment call, no problem, but please do not discard
valid bug reports as "unusual" - it's too easy to blame strange user
hardware/behavior which ultimately defeats the purpose of a beta pool.

Anyway, great work in general on 1.0, and congratulations.
