1) This bug is a month old and due to a Debian patch which was rejected
   by the upstream kernel team.  It still is't fixed in Wheezy, although
   it is listed as pending since April 15.

2) It was incorrectly marked against the wrong kernel version, ignoring
   the my attempt to correct it.

3) Its very likely the same bug as #704933, although your bug tracking
   system seems unable to link related bugs together.

4) Its not listed in the release notes for Wheezy as a problem
   installing on systems with multiple VGA controllers.

5) I had been running Wheezy for about a year, and the only issue I had
   with it occurred a month before it released, without the problem
   being considered significant to apply a known fix, or even tag it
   correctly, although it makes some systems unbootable.
