i tried that before, and it's simply not working this way. there was not enough information to fill the bug report in the first place, as i didn't even know that it's `alias this` to blame. i have other things to do and i can't exclusively dedicate my box to dustmiting that issue (it finally took me 12 hours to dustmite it; yes, it's 12 full hours), so i asked for help in main NG. as nobody was willing to help, i considered that issue unimportant. filling bugs like "this huge project not compiling!" is not working, as nobody wants to run dustmite on such projects, people just waiting for issue author to provide more information.
