No; we don't usually file bug reports to say that everything is OK!
As Marc has said, the chief technical complaints are ls (fixed) and ps.
Where are the bugs with the other technical complaints?

Also, how often do you have to interact with the Debian-exim user
anyway? I don't remember ever having to do a 'chown exim ...' so I don't
know why I would start now.
