Yeah it's a bit late for Jaunty indeed ! ;-)
As long as the bug remains open for future releases, I don't mind...

I am not sure. It was working fine several years ago, with on my 7 year old nForce motherboard. It's only later, that that the bug appeared suddenly. Also, the bug happens on my current motherboard, which is very recent (P35, bought last year). So it's reasonable to think that it's more a software problem.

Yes, last year I replace my nForce board, with a brand new Intel P35 board. I did report this fact in this bug report, see my old comment :
