Yes, I understand well that there are volunteers ar work, especially in the
seamonkey project, and I am really the last one to demand something or
force someone to to anything.  ;-)

OTOH, I love that "open source standard replay" saying: If you have a
problem with our product, just go ahead and fix it yourself.  That may be
possible with a small or medium size open source program, and I have
actually succesfully made changes or fixed errors in such cases a number of
times.  But with huge programs like these mozilla products, I think this
goes beyond my abilities. That would be a task more appropriate for the
"unknown volunteer" who managed to smuggle in the error in the first place.

So please regard my messsage just as a report that I see a small not-yet
corrected error in the program with a little hope on my side that it may
attract the attention of someone who could repair it.  ;-)
