Users can also help other users, for example by pointing out if the
problem is already known and maybe also explaining how to work around it.
As recently witnessed in several replies to these reports.
If these reports only went to the dev list there would be less people
with enough time to handle these reports. We're trying to spread the
workload among all members of the community.
If you feel that this causes unnecessary traffic on this list,
please keep in mind that we released 1.7.0 just two days ago.
The number of such reports will always be higher than usual
immediately after a point zero release.
