  I also though to post on debian-devel, but it felt inappropriate in
this stage of the release cycle. It seems to me and I posted to this
mailing-list to explore unknown cases where people might explain their
own cases and if its a common issue rather than just a localized one.
In any case, I shall follow your advice and post to more appropriate
place. Thanks for the suggestion.

Best regards,
