Until this thread started last year, I had been on the verge of
upgrading the build server on my net to a Ryzen.  Needless to say, I
postponed the change.  Now it seems there is hope that a resolution for
the issue may be in sight.  Is it time to survey everyone's experience
with the problem, and determine whether the cited patch helps?  My
sincere thanks in advance.                                  -- George
