Many thanks for the prompt response Rafał. I had read the list archive, but I
could not tell if that was my issue, and I had no idea that reverting to older
firmware was a possible fix.  That is probably within my capabilities (I used
to do many such things when running Linux From Scratch, until Arch made
me lazy), I will give it a try.
