I really hope this isn't premature.
I think I found what the cause was.
The kernel option acpi_osi="Linux" used to be the "fix" with my Ubuntu install.
I migrated to Debian with a squeeze/sid installation and the "fix"
stopped working. I was stumped.
With GRUB 2 you edit '/etc/default/grub' then run 'update-grub'.
This is the line that _is_ working for me:
Note the escape characters. Previously I wasn't escaping the
quotations therefore the quotes in the kernel option were being
stripped when they were then written to /boot/grub/grub.cfg .
Just a bit frustrating.
