| Yes, it's not passing checks - it's that simple:
Tres etrange, as Romain develops on OS X himself. I will have to pass on this
one for lack of access to such shiny hardware. He may fix it, or he may not.
I vaguely recall us discussing that with you and Romain's inability to
reproduce it. As such, chances of improvement may be slim. Tant pis.
