Waiting for progress on _one_ (potential/real) bug should 
not delay the pretest.  Particularly, when we don't have
enough information to make progress on solving it.

BTW, did anyone look at these reports?

Also, there is a report about a GC problem on Cygwin (presumably)
related to a tool-bar menu-item which Eli and I have tried to dig
into.  I don't have time to pursue it right now.

Here's one of the first items in the thread:

Still, I don't think any of these problems should delay the pretest.
