You are welcome. ;)

There could be any number of reasons - for example, they don't have 
enough people for this. A missed test failing usually does not effect 
end user and thus do not justifies a new release.

That's the beauty of life - people are different. Some are hard, some 
are easy. Even users are different - I don't hear much complains about 
g10 from users. Plus, the "hard" part could also come from the lack of 
resources they have - I don't believe anyone hard on you on purpose.

Are we still talking about a fix in a test? The easiest solution is not 
to run this failing one, do you want somebody else to create a patch for 
you for that?! I suspect I missed something - I thought you were pushing 
a change in the main code.

I'm very happy to hear that. That's the way to make the world a happier 
place! Some patches/tweaks left is not a problem on a grand scale. The 
life will be such a waste without some exciting patches made by brave 
disto maintainers. :)
