This is a minor issue but still it is one.
If things are a bug, it should be filed as a bug: when there's a fault, or a feature request, or any other thing which can go to the tracker, so b.g.o is the right place if it affects multiple configurations and needs addressed. Anything [mis]configuration related, or if it's unclear could likely go to an official support channel if it's gentoo-specific, or even upstream support. An expert user list would be a fine place for that too. Not all resolutions require a developer, and this likely includes misunderstandings or disagreements on how things were handled too.
