Unfortunately I cannot bother testing this on 8.2-RC1 at this stage as
that means I will have to wipe my current 8.1 system out of my laptop
before which I will need to do a thorough backup. And testing this
network issue on 8.2 in my virtualbox is just not possible as my
laptop is just too slow to do any decent test in a virtual machine;
it's not really that old thought - only 7 years old  :-)
