Exactly what you did now: write to the mailing list. While the new
bug-tracking system is nice in lots of ways, it has one major flaw:
it does not seem to send mails to the bugs-list. Since people are not
eager to check the bugtracker regularily its most likely bugreports
are not noticed at all.

Please use diff -u to create unified diffs. In this case, this does not
matter much, but for larger patches, a unified diff is the prefered format.

OK, I'll look into these bugs and will most likely apply the fixes you
