That sounds like a good idea too.
I don't want this to fall between the cracks. Has someone decided what
should be done and taken steps to make sure it is done? I didn't file a
bug report because I don't know what all else this will affect. I read
it affects more than just video drivers. According to someone else,
there are some packages that benefit/need this as well.
I just don't want someone else to go through what I did. I even bought
a new monitor because I thought it was messed up or something.
