PowerMac G5 Single 1.8ghz users!

If you own a PowerMac G5 single cpu 1.8ghz (with 600mhz bus speed, the G5 single with 900mhz bus speed doesn't seem to suffer) you might be the owner of The Buggiest Mac Ever

I bought my 1.8 ghz G5 in May and Tiger to go on it, so I never had Panther running on this Mac. I've had a number of problems, but I assumed they were just glitches in Tiger - they're not, hundreds of people have had the same issue.

Symptoms are:

- eject button failing to work
- Quicktime movies viewed in web pages freezes whole system
- Quicktime in full screen mode freezes system
- problems with Mac waking from sleep

I've had additional problems, such as inability to force-quit out of problem apps, frequent system hangs with SBBOD, all basically amounting to never getting above 2 days of uptime.

This guy is uniting people with this problem to lobby Apple to do something, so if you have this Mac please add your name to his list, or at least check out his links to the Apple support discussions so Apple can see this is a widespread thing!
