Sorry to have lost track of this. Do you know what patch fixed it?
Does 3.5.y from experimental work?

Curious,

That's good to hear. Does that you mean you have a rough patchset
available, even if it doesn't work perfectly yet?

I'd be happy to see some patches e.g. with [PATCH/WIP] in the subject
line so there is something for people listening in to experiment with.
Alternatively if they are not ready for testing or comments but should
go somewhere public in a less noisy way, if you send patches as
attachments to the bug log at 677533-quiet@bugs.debian.org then they
won't be forgotten.

Thanks,
Jonathan
