Especially if people refuse to actual test it to see if it is a bug or not
on their system.  Since it is not on mine my test is meaningless but your
might not be and might help debug it so if you care about helping the
community like you do you should try it and make a complete bug report as
possible.   But as I said it happens in enough odd different places that it
is 90% likely user error not an actual bug and you just falling for FUD if
you are not willing to help figure it out.
