I'm probably one of the most guilty of not using official bug tracking for
everything I discuss in this forum. Part of the issue for me, who is
nowhere near as knowledgeable as Mikus, is that I'm not ever really sure
what I'm seeing is in fact a bug.  It might just be something I don't know
how to do.  So, I await feedback from others in here to educate me.  In
some cases, people just like to make observations, and aren't either
complaining or even asking for help.    I certainly like the free and easy
aspect of what can be accomplished as a volunteer within this little
group.  My +1 is meant to say that I would very much like for Mikus to
continue to report his observations herein.  I learn a lot form his
inoput.  If someone upstream feels it is important enough to file a bug
report, and the observer has not, then so be it, let them do so.   However,
I'm not convinced that having to do so should be a prerequisite for
participation.  If the anecdotal observations without formal bug tracking
don't interest someone, they can certainly ignore them. I know I can :-)
