Would you provide a guarantee to all users of wheezy that you will pay
for their laptop repair if this issue causes damage?

Having the hardware shutdown like that is also a nasty thing that
involves the user losing unsaved work, maybe corrupting preferences for
their desktop if they are unlucky.

This problem happens regularly enough that Debian should not be promoted
for laptops if it is not taken seriously as an RC issue.  Users will get
a very bad impression if basic things like this aren't working in a
stable release.
