For the record here are the bugs that I am looking into for the next release.
Everything else is in SVN and the ACPI fix will be there soon too.
#290039, #290013, #289517, #288712, #285521
These all seem to be the same problem introduced by an ACPI fix from
upstream, I have a subsequent fix that should resolve this.
See notes posted to #290039
#287939, #288712, #285017
These seem to be related so some seraial breakage,
likely related to the tty_lockup security fix (CAN-2004-0814).
I am not sure if this is a new problem or not, but I will take a quick
look to see what gives.
