Do you think through what you are writing before you write it? How do
you think the binary snapshots get created? If the snapshot won't build,
neither source nor binary are made available on the web pages.

It works quite fine for several thousand other users thank you very
much. Is *your* install working correctly? I don't know, and given the
attitude you portray in the email I'm replying to - I don't care. Chris
has, on occasion, been somewhat tough, but has also on those occasions
apologised. In this case I think he has been helpful, direct and
responsive, and you are being - dare I say it - abusive in return.
Hardly the way to get what *YOU* want is it?

And you got an answer - It's not a known flaw. Wht's your problem?

> If you can't help then just shutup instead. 

Chris did help. I really cannot grasp why you are reacting in the manner
you have.
