I suspect this commit introduced it:

Could either be that I call it wrongly from jockey, or that one of the checks is too tight.

This bug was fixed in the package jockey - 0.5.5-0ubuntu4

jockey (0.5.5-0ubuntu4) lucid; urgency=low

  * data/handlers/ Remove suppressing of driver version 71, it's not
    available any more at all.
  * Merge bug fixes from trunk:
    - Explicitly pass start-time to PolicyKit CheckAuthorization
      call, to work with polkit-1 0.95. (LP: #491136)
    - Remove options for version 71, it does not work with current
      versions any more.
