For the tenth time, this is a really unhelpful way of looking at things.
"Detecting duplicates" is not some sort of simple, 'digital' operation
which either works or doesn't; it's a hugely complicated, much more
'analog' area. You can't say abrt has 'working' or 'non-working'
detection of duplicates. It detects some - quite a lot, actually - and
misses others. The abrt devs are always working to make it detect more.
If you see a case where it misses duplicates, the correct thing to do is
not passively-aggressively whine about it on a mailing list, but contact
the abrt developers to report it, with data.
