isn't he an ex beos dev?
of course its a product and all and you might expect your very bug fixed (although i never heard of it so its probably not all that widespread), but it also mean he can actually fix it (that's what open source is all about). Also, if it was actually widespread i'd expect someone to have been annoyed and fixed it for everyone.

Before you say google should fix it for you remember that 99% of the code running has been done by people like us and given away under the redistribution condition to be able to do exactly this sort of things (among other things). otherwise you might as well use only proprietary software.

The bug IS widespread, and it's definitely not "my pet bug" as you're insinuating. It happens with some routers, but not with others, but it happens with enough of them. I just came back from a 7 page discussion at the Nexus One Google group, discussing just that. Not even counting the rest of the countless threads about it.

The particular driver is not open source btw, and therefore, it can't be fixed by the community.
