You think so even considering the large amount of people that would get
this report?  I'd rather be cautious and have at least one confirmation
of the failure before reporting it.  But, of course, it's your
choice--as long as we report something.

I can set mine up on Ubuntu 6.x and 7.x and MacOS X.  Send me your
buildbot config so I know we're doing the same things.  It's probably
good to publicize these, actually, so others can set up Emacs buildbots
easily.  Maybe the Emacs wiki would be a good place to post the config?

Great :)

Excellent.  I'll do --with-ns, --without-x, and --with-x on MacOS X and
just the latter two on the Ubuntu systems.
