We've switched processes starting with 2.6.39 and I think we're doing
better in this regard. For this particular issue, the regression came
with 2.6.38, and the revert was too large for me to consider merging
just before 3.0 shipped -- I knew reverting it *would* cause problems
for anyone using UMS on newer hardware.

He nicely delivered the message for you a few months ago in person.
In any case, I'm hoping that my smaller fix will resolve the problem and
also not cause regressions for other users.
