Probably buggy hardware, as usual?

But the ONLY system I ever saw a problem on is the ASUS Eee PC 900 (where elantech support breaks all mouse movement). Which is an extremely irrelevant joke of a machine. I only booted it for the nostalgia/laughs/dmesgd.nycbug posts.

Definitely +1 to enabling by default. Reducing the amount of tunables required for modern desktop use is very good.
