Yes I looked at most of those forum comments. there is a lot of misinformation
there. of the few instances where the question was answered, the common
suggestion was to update the kernel. That is rarely a valid answer to
something like this but when people see that you're running an old kernel,
they grasp at straws. I did solve/work around the problem by disabling the
sandbox. Not elegant but usually effective.
