Thanks a lot Mike, I realize I didn't read the text at help.ubuntu too 
well. I've been reporting bugs using Apport since Feisty. Never knew I 
could provide "free style" reports.

Indeed it's about Intrepid. Alpha and Beta testing is a easy way to give 
something in reverse. Beside that I'm running a Ubuntu Service Site in 
my area:

As you can see, Ubuntu means more to me, than yet another GNU/Linux 
distribution, it's more or less a way of living ;-)

Cheers and thanks again for your help.
