I believe I know what but you're talking about, and yes, it wasn't handled
perfectly, but *it was handled*, as opposed to the aforementioned bug that's
getting reported to the mailing list many months after the release *shrug*

I clicked on that UDD link posted in the thread and selected squeeze, and
found only one bug report mentioning sparc, and it didn't seem to be about
this issue. So, the first step here would be for someone who can describe
the symptoms to report this.

Nobody's really expecting people to work out detailed fixes, just to report
bugs to the BTS. Jurij's sentence above was probably unclear - it's certain
that hoping won't make it better, and it's certain good reports might, but
the intermediate state - any kind of bug reports - is also much better than

Even if you don't have any idea what's wrong, do report it, because it can
help others congregate around the report - it often happens that people
google their symptoms, find the bug report, and then some of them contribute
something more useful.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
