This is not quite true. The problem only occurs for a small
number of users, and until recently none of these have been able
or willing to debug it. The core developers are getting frustrated
as they cannot reproduce the problem. I believe some progress
is now being made (see Brian Ford's postings), so hopefully the
problem will soon be understood, and a fix is then likely to appear.
