Not complaining at all but saying that Debian is so broken. :) If
someone finds a bug, he should allways report it after looking at the
bug tracking system, the manpage and the changelog of the current
unstable version. Its  better to have a bug reported twice then to
have not reported at all.

I heard from several maintainers that they like having bugs reported
against their package, because it shows that they do valuable work in
maintaining the package. The bug tracking system is the onbly feedback 
a maintainer normaly has.

May the Source be with you.

PS: All maintainers who get too many bug reports will probably kill me 
for this.

PPS: Hey, lets write a statistic package that collects useage counters 
for packages from all debian systems where its installed on.
