Release-critical Bug-list for October 15

Bug stamp-out list for Oct 15  1998 (CET)

We're currently less then 24 hours removed from the slink freeze, so
everyone has to hurry to upload those last new packages or new upstream
versions. Also, a lot of things have happened since the last report:
KDE has been removed, Brian White has downgraded a bunch of bugreports
and a bunch of fixes were uploaded. Back to bussiness, below is the
new report.

Please note I welcome any remarks about bugs listed here, so I can
included them in the next post and in the online version of this
report (http://www.debian.org/~wakkerma/report.html, or !bugs in
#debian for the current count of release-critical bugs) at
