It has nothing to do with your skill level in C.  Nobody expects you
to actually fix the bugs -- just to report them in a way that makes
it easy for other people to reproduce them.

If you have a 5 line script that produces behavior you feel is wrong,
then try reducing it further.  If you comment out the last line, does
the problem still happen?  If you get rid of a substitution and replace
it with a constant string, does it still happen?  And so on.

Eventually you get the script down to the smallest possible script that
still shows the problem.  That's what you send to the mailing list.
