Ok I tried that, but nothing changed. Or I should say that I couldn't
trigger the bug.
Note that the missing thinkpad|ibm-acpi module seems to be the cause.
I quickly tried your command but nothing seems to have changed, I
tried running zsnes with each variation of the command but nothing

Shall I try without the module?
