Well, see my reply to Greg. According to documentation, stable tree is
for

 - It must be obviously correct and tested.
 - It must fix a real bug that bothers people (not a, "This could
   be a   problem..." type thing).
 - It must fix a problem that causes a build error (but not for
   things marked CONFIG_BROKEN), an oops, a hang, data corruption, a real
   security issue, or some "oh, that's not good" issue.  In short, 
   something critical.
    
. This one was not tested in the stable trees, and it was not really
bothering anyone. It was not even present in some of the kernels... It
was not an oops, hang... etc.

You still use keyboard to access the VMs, right?

                                                                        Pavel
