If you feel there is a kernel bug, please file a bug against the
"kernel" package.  The Debian BTS does not support the filing of the
same report against multiple packages (well, it sort of does, but it
doesn't work well.)

Also, just FYI, it will confuse people if you refer to the testing
release codenamed "sarge" as "Sergeant".

When filing bug reports against xserver-xfree86, please include the
information described in the XF86Config(7) manual page.  This
data is collected and included automatically if you use the "reportbug"
package and command of the same name to file bug reports with the Debian
Bug Tracking system.
