I agree that we should try to get rid of annoying bugs. But - the way
to do this is not to break our point releases, but to release Debian
quite more often. If we really manage to release Debian about once a
year, such bugs are not so bad as it seems now.

But: Definitly point releases are _not_ the right way to get a new
gnome version in. No way.
