they have paid not attention to this, and have not responded to past  
messages enquiring about it.

the pointer in the track issue to an ami with a more recent canonical/ 
ubuntu kernel is promising.
no ami which i have found to use to start an instance appears to be  
recent enough as the test program still behaves anomalously.

would someone have an ami id for a sufficiently recent kernel?

if i could answer that, in particular, sufficiently well to give  
amazon a bug report which they would act upon, i would not have  
reopened the bug.
