	Ah...I focused on the 'full' part, not the attached part.

	It's just damn confusing.

	One list, filters attachments, another, they expect it...

That doesn't mean they are _always_ good reasons.

Note I did try to underline the word "entirely", AND, I did include
it, "whatever my reservations".  I was merely commenting on how, in some
cases it provides 'random goose chase' information.  More often than
not, I've seen it used to blow off user bug reports because some i isn't
dotted, or t, crossed.  Whatever, I understand, which isn't to say I
always necessarily enjoy it -- but in this circumstance, considering
the abstractions and mixtures of SW, I thought such a report more than
reasonable to provide.

I'm just wondering if there's a way to turn on coredumps and give stack
traces of the X I'm running vs. downloading some 'extra special' version.
I get coredumps on linux and windows, and am able to generate backtrace info
on both for many situations (more on linux than windows), sometimes it 
leads me
to investigate things more on my own and even find workaround or fixes,
but the X server hasn't crashed on me since the last report, (but I am 
away from running yast2 for the time being!)....

C'est la vie & Cheers!
