This said, in order to reduce confusion and the possability of bugs
being reported and discussed in multiple places
please use GNATS to report the issue. This also means that if the bug
turns out to be in a port it will be easier to just change the
classification and give it to the maintainer instead of creating a new
bug with no history.
