Comment 30 for bug 317781

I never had any trouble, but I installed Jaunty last week, after the fix
was released. Is it possible this bug now only affects those that
installed it prior to the fix? When did you guys install it?

I've moved over 100GB of files since I installed it. I had at least two
hard crashes, everything seems to be intact.
