Thanks for the response.

I did not see any PRs specifically mentioning this hardware.  I did try to 
submit a bug report, but the reporting tool gave me an error, after trying a 
few times I gave up.

The hardware in question is a new HP DC5850 SFF desktop - AMD Athlon X2 5400, 
160GB SATA (Seagate).
