I can't say whether there is still a problem. Due to
the volatile nature of their support echo, there were a few who
contacted me off the list later asking whether I had resolved the
problem, and if so, what it might be.

It never was "documented", since it officially didn't exist. Some
of the supporters at the time denied that it was possible. That
was one of the reasons the person I was helping with Debian at the
time decided to abandon the distro. Too much volatility, and
denial of problems. I prefer not to go into the politics of it,
but I definitely encountered a problem with Debian and USB keyboards
and mice.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
