Now this does open up the question as to why Apple didn't leave 
CardBus enabled.  I could see it being a problem if it meant adding 
parts/labor, but it sounds like both solutions mentioned here are 
removing a circuit.  Then again, maybe they didn't know they had a 
problem until later in production, at which time they fixed the 
Japanese Mighty Cats.
