I'm not looking for special favors.  I'm stunned at the "this is
normal" reaction that I'm getting after reporting that a bugreport
_with an available patch_ has gone _completely unanswered_ for 30 days
(even after a polite direct inquiry to the author).  In fact, I was
convinced that the maintainer had vanished from the surface of the
earth, but I just found an evolution-related email from him dated 20
Jan 2004, so I guess he's still around.
