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.

I'm happy with that, but I'd suggest that it does need the more experienced user/developers to ride herd on the rest of us, and when somebody has an issue to say one of:

* That's a known issue which won't be changed for a good reason, live with it.

*  That's been reported already.

*  That's new, report it.

The worst possible thing that can happen is for somebody who's got hold of a SPARC-based system and is trying to find out whether it's any use for anything to post a concern, to not get any feedback, and then to find out from Google that the problem was known about several years ago and never fixed.

Because that's almost certainly going to be somebody who dumps the architecture, never comes back to it, and tells everybody else that SPARC is dead.
