Re: Request for assistance with a bug
Apologies for this long message in advance :)
Thanks in advance for any assistance or advice!
Use less history, and use more details. In your first paragraph you wrote that
you can't seem to get any dev's interested in your issue. I would leave that out
entirely. Instead, I would have mentioned what Desktop Environment I use, what
version, kernel, etc.
If you are using gnome, I would suggest trying to open up a ticket on the gnome
development bug tracking system.
This is just a guess, but Lenny just went into feature freeze and they decided
not to use the new gnome files transfer sub-system in Lenny. Therefore, I would
guess that since you're using Hardy (that's a guess too actually), which uses
the new gnome file transfer system, Debian dev's are going to have their hands
full with lenny stuff and won't be jumping all over your problem until they
start looking at it themselves for lenny +1.
My advice is to create a separate partition, install Ibex and file bug reports
against Ibex. That is your best bet (IMHO) to getting this issue resolved in the
next 6 months.
Or, install Lenny, which won't be using the new gnome VFS transfer
thing-a-ma-bobber, and so probably doesn't have this issue.
