Yup, my previous mail referred to me pushing it to people who can test
it, so I'll let you know if it does actually make a difference (and
perhaps try another build after with it reverted again "just in case" a
simple rebuild is actually all that was needed).

It's definitely confusing but I think you can see from the backtracks on
those bugs that there is definitely something funny with the card
