 The problem is: We don't know that for sure. :/

 Yeah, I'm back.... :)

 Let's make it so.
 We should also check back the open bugs whether we can reproduce
 them with 1.2.2 and bother the bugwriters again if not. Of course
 for obvious cases this is not necessary. This way we can move the
 bugs up in the versioning and hopefully sort out a few more.

 In the next time I'll be going to check back all the open queries
 for information and check for reproducibility on my 3 testmachines
 here (i686 notebook, AMD Duron, PPC notebook) whether I can reproduce
 them and close them if not. We need to improve the quality of the
 reports a lot to be really helpful; without a good description 
 and a stacktrace for crashes they are useless so we should urge the
 reporters to give us this information.
