I'm running it, hand built, here, and cannot report either problem.  I did 
have to do a hardware reset early this morning, my boot drive was reporting a 
tummy ache that has me worried about its health.  This is the last of about 10 
such instances that made the log, but since the reboot, its all kewl again:
=========

==========
and the new log starts after that, and is nominal now.

Smartd had been spamming the logs before that but reading the temps
wrong by doing a double C->F conversion, reporting the temp as >120C
when it wasn't even 95F according to a finger laid on it.  That drive
is in the bottom of the tower and runs 5F warmer than the other 2
which are in 3.5-5.25 adapters with builtin cooling fans.  I have
started a 'smartctl -t long /dev/sda' on it now for additional info.
The drive isn't that old. POH=27754.
