Hi Gilles,
I'm sure the folks who are responsible for issue relating to x windows
configuration, the kde package and other issues would love to hear your
comment but Knoppix or PCLinuxOS development is not in anyway connected
to Debian development and bug reports about other distros are of minimal
use to Debian. A bug in Knoppix is not a bug in Debian. While they use
the same package format and may share source code at some point in time,
the end result is not used in Debian and thus a bug in Knoppix is most
likely knoppix-specific. 
When you get a change to try/install Debian, please feel free to write
as many bugreports as you like! And also, this list is for the
development of the Debian distribution and not specifically for user
issue, those are handled on the debian-user mailing list.
