Petter, please be more constructive. I still have not heard why this bug 
should be either grave (users are not supposed to login to desktop with root 
user. Those who do are not in majority and are doing something wrong), nor 
serious (it does not violate debian policy) nor critical (which basically is a 
more severe level of grave). So that's how I see your words: "unless you bump 
severity to RC for no good reason, I refuse to help. And yeah, it's all KDE 
team's fault!". Oh, that's really helpful.

As I have already said in my previous mail, if you want the issue solved, 
you're welcome to propose a good patch. Just to be sure that we are on the 
same ship here: if you want to force unjustified RC severity upon us because 
other people would be forced to work on the issue, such collaboration won't 
work well. If you're afraid that your efforts might be wasted, well it is all 
up to release team but we will try to include your fix. We can't promise 
anything because final word is not ours so, really, all the heat is pointed 
towards the wrong direction.
