Hi frederic,

Thanks for the bug report.  I would appreciate it if you would stick to
one forum (bugzilla or the mailing list) for this so I don't have to
answer on both.  In fact for bugs that don't require a lot of discussion
I would like to keep it in bugzilla since it is easy for us to track.  

Relevant bugs is here
