Re: description of "general" pseudo-package is misleading (leads people to use it as a catch-all)

retitle 661241 vlc probably using wrong sound output by default (but not clear from reporter)
reassign 661241 vlc
tag 661241 moreinfo
severity 661241 minor
submitter 661241 Mikko Koho <cryogenium@gmail.com>

Mikko Koho: I'm guessing as to what your problem is, but you're going
to have to provide more information in order for anyone to address it
properly. Please indicate which version of vlc you are using, which
sound output it is using, etc.

Please don't hijack bugs to report problems unrelated to the original
bug report and original bug reporter. This is what clone is for.
