Yes.  I discovered fetchmail hadn't been retrieving those emails all week,
and last night I got a large number of emails about the bug - including one
from Mark Shuttleworth.  Looks like something will happen, now, though I'm
concerned that some think reportbug is unnecessary.

fwiw, Corey has apparently been catching the reportbug submissions to this
list, so they aren't being ignored.
