Good explanation. Unfortunate situation.

It took me a while, searching through all of the mail copies I kept, to see if
this wasn't perhaps a bug I had filed. There is nothing in Stefan's reply mail
to indicate who reported the bug or when it was reported - just an oblique
reference to "your problem". 

Not to mention that it is not enough to sort by Subject, since "Scrolling..."
collates differently from "bug#21: Scrolling...".

Anyway, the bug logging is a plus, even if it is still quite primitive.
