The bug 204396 obviously has nothing to do with Michel's problem,
because it refers to a specific failure scenario which cannot be
affected by a power cycle.

For the case of libusual, Dave Jones have not dropped ub from Rawhide
kernels yet. Perhaps he's giving me time to find an acceptable
workaround or somehow work the class-based notifier into upstream.
But neither the notifier patch is applied, so we continue to have
this problem. So, once Michel figures out his problem, he may run
into the 204396, and would need to apply one of the workarounds
listed there.
