But all the hundreds of thousands of x40s that were made...still exist.
Most of them, someone somewhere is still using. 

I do sometimes worry about the 'hey, that hardware is more than six
months old, so we don't have to care about it!' attitude. I'm sorry I
can't help more to fix this particular issue, but I didn't have access
to the hardware for long and wasn't able to track down anyone who cared
and could tell me what information to gather. :/
