Has Mr. Mr. Dmitry Baryshev read all the responses by Sandro Tosi. I
think Sandro made it very clear (typo corrected):

Here is CC for Mr. Dmitry Baryshev.

Anyway, if I trust Mr. Dmitry Baryshev, he has pure squeeze. What ever
application he used to create this situation may be the cause. He needs
to file a bug report to the package which is causing problem. (I do not
know how he created this ~/.gtkrc which he claims to be the cause.)
reportbug has nothing to do with this.
One may file a general bug report if he does not know which package is
causing problem. But that is usually a least useful kind of bug report.
One should not report bug to the wrong package. If it is not
immediately clear to DD which package is causing problem from a vague
bug report which seems to be caused by user miss configuration, DD will
close such useless bug report. It serves nothing.
Please think about this.
