As you should have noticed, that is not my original post. The phrase you
are have repeated in the above quote was before the OP in time and I
have explained how it occurred. Starting right after the original post,
I have explained the sequence of events as I traced back my steps and
knew more. What else do you want me to do, go back in time and fix the
initial report? Sigh!

> Debian doesn't accept bug reports for third party software. 

Your reasoning for this statement appears to be that you somehow have
evidence that the bug is in fact not in any debian package at all. What
made you to make the conclusion?

As far as I am concerned, at least for me it is premature to decide (as
I see, a premature statement can incite quite strong reactions from some
here, re. "out of the blue"). It is also likely that the bug is in fact
in the debian package, motion, that has been triggered by the third party.

So, thanks for your suggestions and sorry for any trouble.
