Manoj sometimes gives the impression of not listening, because he
doesn't "nod" and say "yes, hm" by e-mail. But if you assert that he is
in fact not listening and not taking into consideration what he hears,
you should back up this claim with some references. I have the opposite
impression: The bugs that get no answer in the BTS are fixed soon, only
those that he discusses might be tricky, or he reluctant to fix them.
