Suggests that the lower occurrence of gas giants around M-dwarfs is to timescales (disc evaporation or accretion) rather than lack of solids.

« …"The part that worries us is that the elevated friction that we're seeing in wheel number four now is very reminiscent of what we saw a year ago in wheel number two, which eventually failed," said Kepler deputy project manager Charlie Sobeck, also of NASA Ames.
"Wheel two had elevated friction for about six months, a little bit more than that, before it finally failed," Sobeck told SPACE.com. "Now we're going on four months of elevated friction here on wheel number four. So we're certainly concerned that we may be on the same kind of path here…"
