I'm confused. Does the Debian Project actually WANT people to file bug
reports? If not, why bother having a public bug-tracker, where the
standard reply is, "That's not a bug, you're just too stupid to
understand the perfection that we've created."

Conversely, if bug reports ARE wanted, then why is it considered
appropriate to reply in such a condescending and insulting way, to the
people who file them?

Do you want bug reports, or not? Would anybody care to argue that this
current case is NOT a bug? Should I infer that in the future, you would
prefer that I f*** off, and mind my own business?
