It is an upstream change, that much is clear it is related to the SCSI
command change from a while back, that does not mean we shouldn't at
least propose a fix or ask the reporters for more information.. We know
it's broken, we've known for months. This is probably the single most
active bug I have ever had to deal with and all we've seen is users
saying "me too".

I report bugs to Fedora, my life is to short to track down every single
projects bugzilla, create accounts and repeat the information. I use
Fedora, if the maintainer of the package feels the bug report needs to
go upstream he can ask me to do so. The bug has not been closed as
NOTOURBUG and it directly affects users of Fedora. It worked with FC4,
we lived with the regression in FC5.. please don't make us suffer in FC6
as well.
