Hi Christian,

I do not think there is much trolling.  We need to discuss issues openly.  On
servers I will upgrade to Wheezy, but on desktops, I am not sure.  While the
GNOME team's work is outstanding, and while I like GNOME 3 and find it
promising, GNOME 3.4 is simply still lacking many simple features, such as
remembering some configuration changes and window positions, or giving by
default a configuration interface that allows to set the focus to follow the
mouse, etc., not to mention that I can not switch between French and Japanese
without losing the compose key and the dead keys.  This will probably come back
with later versions, and I think I will wait for them and upgrade from Squeeze
to Testing at some time.

I also had some strange update problems with Iceweasel (where it is hard to
type in the title bar without having some letters randomly removed), and I
would like to emphasize that one of the reasons I have not even reported a bug
is precisely because I had the feeling that discussing such issues is unwelcome
unless one is able to dedicate a lot of time in solving the problem, and that on the
other hand, merely reporting a bug is not enough to solve a problem (such as having
GNOME3's tracker freezing my Desktop each time I start my computer #612242).

As long as people do not repeat themselves and push other people out of the
discussion by sending many emails a day, I do not think it is trolling to
discuss problematic issues.  Upgrading to Wheey made my Desktop much less
usable than before.  I promise to not send any other message in this thread.

Have a nice day,
