Make sure these issues get filed in bugzilla as soon as they're
discovered, in order to maximize the chances of them getting
fixed sooner rather than later.
Both have already been bugzilla'd for some time now.
If everyone does their part in reporting bugs, it greatly helps
to get the distro in better shape earlier.
That's what I do with fedora, report bugs. I don't code, but I can test
(and if people help me a little I can get the right info to help track
down bugs too ;-])
Thanks in advance, and thanks for testing!
