Hi Gabor,

I don't know which package to file bug against either, except item 4.
Let us hope someone knows and can help :-)

Can you help by looking into the source code too (or only test and file
bug reports, like most of us)?

If you login and look at this link

You can see some bugs that are reported for Raring Final alias the
released version 13.04 , and check if you are also affected by any of them.

Best regards
