Comment 46 for bug 201225

I confirm this and would like to reiterate its importance.

I have posted my experiences in the ubuntu forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1227509&highlight=pernicious

More info- my hardware is an eee pc, the 900 with the celeron. Also the 701.

Note that in the end I found that Opensuse(gnome) did not display the same issue.
