Prior versions of Fedora Rawhide had oopses too, and they reported where the oops report was sent and to which version of the kernel.  This new tool does not.  I wonder where the report got sent?  It surely did not go to the Fedora bugzilla :(  I know it is just a warning, but thanks to it, the internet connection died and I could not reply again to the message.

Yep, sorry :(, got overly anxious to get it out of the way, most of the bugs/reports in the sealerts I tried to file but the connection died might have been because of the oops?

I have not seen any suggestions yet?, normally we see things like 
fixed in policy-XX.YYY.ZZZ.rpm
, etc.  But in this case, the bug might be a repeat of someone else's problem :(

Thanks Adam for your help/advice/suggestions.  I hope I am not the only one with those bugs, and If I am I take my /*RANT*/ Back :)
