Maybe, but we shouldnt be the bunch of people relying on heavyweights to
move things. If we do, we have already failed to see open development.
It's always useful to report this issue where it has a much better
traction. For metacity, thats the GNOME bugzilla. For a typical user,
this is a distribution specific issue. As a more technically inclined
user who is discussing issues in a development list, I would like you to
step up a bit more than that.
