Make me the third.  I have a Sony F707 camera, which I can use on
4-stable and with 5-current on a Dell I5000 laptop, but not on 5-current
on an Asus A7M266-D with world/kernel built 9/4/03.  The bad data starts
at byte 4096, always.  The problem has existed for at least a month,
perhaps longer; I can't remember if it ever worked on the Asus.  But
the same system runs fine with usb keyboard and mouse - which proves
nothing as the data rate and amount are so small.  So I can't rule
out hardware as the problem.  In a few days I can try booting from
a 4.8 live cd and see if the hardware works ok.  Old-quirks had no
effect on the problem.
