Your bug is a hardware-specific X bug, so tracking it in the Bugzilla
report is most appropriate; unfortunately we can't really hold releases
for very specific bugs like this, as we can never entirely eliminate
them from all hardware. We have to go with a judgement call for how
widespread the effect of a bug like this needs to be before we hold the
release for it. Thanks for the report, though!
