Well, yea.  I figure they will fix it pretty quick since the bug is
active and folks are working on it.  I wouldn't want my change to break
something in the future when just using a known good version, one that I
was using until just the other day, will work just fine.  Also, I'll
forget I changed that and let the config update when it gets updated
again.  They could lead to breakage too.

Also, I was wanting to update the kernel anyway.  I had trouble with my
network on a older kernel and had to update to fix that.  So far, the
new 3.3 kernel has helped my network even more.  I was actually fixing
more than one issue with the kernel upgrade and downgrading was all of a
one line command.  I'm more likely to remember downgrading than editing
a config file these days.

I'm just glad to get some of this mess sorted.  < sighs >
