I completely understand that.  I've been spoiled at how good the
things were in the past. :) I don't mind things breaking, but I don't
want you to not know about it if you think life is happy. :)

So it was more of a "hey, this one broke stuff on the front panel"
report, than a "hey, some things back there don't work", which is
usually what I bump across, and try to understand enough to submit
a patch before someone else does (not yet :).
