Not really. Do you know how many people request help and do genuine attempts
to fix bugs on this list ? There are many, many people asking for help and only
a few of us able to provide it. As people get familiar and competant we end
up adding them into the Team to help share the load, but few people have
the dedication and patience to spend the time it takes.

I'd already flagged your work and saved it. It's in my inbox of fixes to add.
My inbox currently stands more than 2000 messages - this is *after* filtering
out bad bug reports, stuff I can't help with etc. This is 2000+ messages I
should do something about. Most of the team are in the same state. Either
more help on other open issues (bugzilla is open, use it) or a little more
patience would be appreciated.
