This is good news! I just happen to have a ThinkPad that seems to have some
intermittent hardware problems in the PCMCIA section -- perhaps a bad land
or a cold solder joint. So things tend to happen on my machine that should
not normally happen. This is usually a bad thing; however, sometimes it is
a good thing for me as a driver developer, because I can find errors in the
rarely used code paths! In fact, the service organization in my company
must think it is a good thing, because they refused to fix my ThinkPad. It
passed the Built In Self Test, so they told me I must have software
