They sent a CE out to swap parts, but beyond that they didn't really
seem to care about solving the problem when that didn't fix it.  They
kept shuffling me back to some telephone support engineer who was
convinced that I was doing something wrong since he couldn't reproduce
the problem; he kept closing the ticket, and, out of frustration, I
finally quit reopening it.

It's a sad day when Dell provides better on-site and telephone support
than Sun.
