I am sure you will get all help you need in a mailinglist about SUSE
Linux. Check out www.suse.com for their lists.

I believe hardly anyone here knows where SUSE stores its stuff and what
customisation they did. Maybe there is a bug in the specific package you
use. The guys at SUSE will tell you. 


BTW: Debian is a great Linux distribution. Maybe you want to switch?
