Strangely enough, when I was nailed by this issue, it didn't take me a long 
time to find the existing bug, which kept me from reporting a dupe.

The only trick is to know which package is the culprit.  Here, it was rather 
obvious that this bug would get reported as a kernel bug.  Although there's 
some controversy here as to whether the actual bug may turn out to be 
someone else's (mkinitrd's specifically, which I find a bit difficult to 
believe), the initial report would definitely get filed against the kernel.

What I do is first pull up all the open bugs against the package.  If I 
still don't find anything I then pull all bugs, open and closed, narrowing 
down the search to the last couple of FC releases.
