Thank you for the bug report.  At the moment, the Fedora developers are
busy fixing other issues and do not have time to work on this one.  The
best way to make sure your problem will get looked on is to report it to
the authors of the program. Mostupstream authors use a bug tracking system
like bugzilla, and more people who know the code will be looking at the
bug report there.

The upstream bug tracking system to use is:

You are requested to add the bugzilla link here for tracking purposes.
Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker
before filing it.
