I'm sorry, I should be fair here: It's not clear that this isn't a
packaging or versioning problem in Debian.  However, both the .14 and
.15 releases are broken here (in different ways).

Agreed; although I was venting I didn't mean to lay blame.  It is, in
fact, impossible for any developer to guarantee proper funcion on 50
models.  I tired to do this myself long ago with cdparanoia, and
didn't really succeed either.

Yes, but--- I'll bet real money that Debian's .14 is not a clean .14.

I can't look into more detail right now.  I just moved to a new [which
is to say, very old] house myself, and my LiDE are still packed up
(of all the silly things, there are no grounded outlets in the whole
house, so I can't plug in my desktop yet!)
