So, you're using a FREE distro (one with a quick release schedule and a
well-documented "rolling beta nature") where they fixed-in-next-release
ALL THREE of your reported bugs and, based on that outcome, you've
"learned to avoid wasting [...] time filing" them?

Wow.  You sound like a fun guy to work with.

Please remind me to cut PathScale as much slack the next time I'm
