    Hi Stefano,

    It's great that you tried this out. However, posting
    bugs on the user list is counter-productive.

    I recently wrote the following on

    We appreciate your trying it out, but comments like
    this in are useless to us and
    ultimately to your own cause. Please go to and file your issues. This way
    we can guarantee that they'll be looked into and
    eventually addressed. This is the *only* way 2.0 will
    be released and be usable by the masses, yourself

    Ideally people trying out development/unstable
    releases who build from source will compile with
    --enable-debug so that we might gather still more
    useful information from their crashes and hangs.

    Please do file bugs in bugzilla. We'll look into them
