please let me clarify:
I only did a tiny contribution to this project and have nothing to say
whatsoever. I never did run the regression tests in my life, I don't
even know how they work, and I am really glad you are submitting a bug
report about this. I just jumped in to make clear that there is another
mailing list to report to but it seems I took this information from the
wrong page. I went through my previous mails again but could not find
any rudeness or abuse in it. If there is, put it down to the fact that I
am not a native speaker of the English language. But I really think you
are overreacting a tad.
