Ok, I've removed these from the 3.0.5 release, but I really want them in
a future 3.0-stable release, so I'll carry them over to the next one and
keep trying until it all gets worked out.

As for the bug reports, I've seen them, but I don't know the status of
the hardware to be able to have them reported publicly at the moment,

I'll keep working with Jon on these.
