I had posted the message to the LTS list, as I had believed that the
problem arose from a package update that was implemented as part of
the LTS "maintenance".

However, I appear to have been wrong in my assumption - the problem
appears to have arisen from the increasing instability of my Debian 6
LTS system.

I had, previous to the message above, understood that the LTS mailing
list was a mailing list to discuss matters relevant to the Debian 6
LTS system, including how to implement the LTS component of the
system, and, problems with packages that are part of that system, so
that, especially if an "LTS update" is found to be defective, the
update can be fixed.

Perhaps, clarifiication as to what exactly is the purpose of the list,
could be helpful, so that users of Debian 6 LTS, would know that the
mailing lists is not for the benefit of users of Debian 6 LTS; for
discussion and resolution of problems encountered in the course of the
use of the Debian 6 LTS system, and, achieving resolution of such
problems; that the list is instead, for the benefit of the Debian 6
LTS developers.
