Benjamin has been working on a logging window that a user can launch
from the GUI. Obviously this won't help much for when Gnash segfaults.
In that case it would be really cool if there were a segfault handler
that submits a stacktrace to us. But I don't know if that last part
should be up to the distribution -- some already have that -- or if we
should take care of that within Gnash.

Hmmm....  I'm wondering if we ought to have the plugin write a shell
script to /tmp/ which runs gnash -vv and the rest of
the parameters in a standalone environment.  Just one small file, when
the plugin gets requested to render something.  That would be the only
thing it writes by default, so the School Linux folks who are having
a problem with gnash writing too much stuff to the X server log file,

If we do that, we could easily tell people "Run /tmp/"
when they have a problem.  It would take care of sending email to
address@hidden (or somesuch place).

It would also give people, currently frustrated, something to do which
would be successful.
