I am not sure where we are on this bug. Has it been reproduced? Has its origin
It has been 3 months and I just got a notification of the posting of the bug but
no comments were included in ther mail message or in the bug report on bugzilla.
I was the one that posted this bugzilla request. I keep getting the request
copied back to me without any additional comments. Why is this?
You get a mail any time a field in the bugreport changes, such as the recent
owner change. I just recently got all the procps bugs, and i haven't had time to
look at this one yet.
Mass reassign to new owner
Could you check this versus the current release?
