too much of a time hence marking a bug invalid

You filed the bug on the 28th of July. On the 7th of August (just over a 
week later), the maintainer examined it. Today you were asked for some 
more information, you provided it and then (as far as I can tell) you 
marked the bug invalid.

Bear in mind that you are running a development version of an operating 
system, and things are expected to break at certain points. Some of 
these things are much more important than others, and so people will 
target those first. It's unsurprising that a relatively unimportant bug 
such as this will be looked at with lower priority than "My panel keeps 
crashing" or "Openoffice deleted my home directory", but it doesn't 
alter whether the bug is valid or not. Plese do not mark real bugs as 
invalid just because you feel that it's taken too long.
