Not only is this bug a duplicate, which is immediately obvious upon
opening the bugpage of this package, but you filed 63 similar bugs
without mailing -devel about your intentions first. This is important,
because then someone would have told you you're about to spam the BTS
with 63 duplicate bugs.

Please go over all your submitted bugs, and close the duplicate ones
yourself, and while at it, you could apologize to the maintainers for
causing them extra work for nothing.

And read [1] too.
