The lucent problem is well known and has been known for a long time.
It was broken between 5.0 and 5.1 for some people with lucent cards
(not me and mine).  Enabling WITNESS seens to help, but that likely
means that it is a race that the overhead of WITNESS tickles in
certain ways.  Sam indicated he'd try to find some time to fix it.
There's something subtle going on with the lucent cards, and I've
given up trying to find it.  I just do't have the time.
