Never a bother, thanks for sharing your experiences :)

Yes, and if there isn't enough information this failure already, you'll
likely want to try to determine when the failure started.  I'm not a
kernel test expert, but I would probably try ...

     1. Install a Fedora release (F11, F12 or F13)
     2. Prior to rebooting into installed system ... install a range of
        different kernels
              * F-12 GA kernel
              * F-12 updates kernel
              * F-13 Alpha kernel
              * F-13 Beta kernel
              * F-13 updates-testing kernel
     3. Try booting all installed kernels

Depending on the results, this will help pinpoint when the problem was
introduced.  From there, you may want to try installing additional
kernels to further narrow down which changes introduced the problem.
You can find additional released kernels in bodhi

Yes.  If this problem is confirmed present in Fedora 13, and something
that would affect a wide range of systems, I don't see any reason why we
can't list this issue on Common_F13_Bugs.
