Nagging implies repition. People should try and not submit multiple
bugs on the same issue. But nothing tells us you know about the
upstream version, and it's not unreasonable to assume you don't if
you haven't done anything about it for weeks or months. On the same
lines, I don't know if you're already working on the persistent 
crashes I saw in your package (rhetorically speaking) - should I 
not submit a bug on it?
