That only shows how badly GNATS sucks and that it's much more 
uncomfortable to
use than writing a mail.
I totally agree that error need to be tracked in an error tracker where 
don't get lost, you have a proper history etc. pp. but GNATS is just 
ancient and
should have died in a fire a long time ago.
