Do you still have access to hardware that can reproduce this bug, and
if so, would you be interested in pursuing a fix in squeeze?

(A squeeze kernel should work without trouble on a wheezy/sid system,
so this doesn't involve installing any new packages except for the
kernel itself.  The one complication I know of is the nouveau X
driver, as documented in [1].  There is a simple workaround for it
that I can describe if that case applies to you.)

If the answer is "no", that's fine, but please do let us know so we
can plan accordingly.

Thanks for your help,
