Your report is still lacking sufficient detail to allow others to
figure out what problem you're really seeing.
Describing problems like this in prose alone rarely conveys enough
information. Below is a template response asking for more information.


You need to tell us: 1) _exactly_ what you typed; 2) _exactly_ what you
saw; 3) _exactly_ how what you saw differed from what you expected to
see. Do 1) and 2) by reproducing the problem while keeping a
transcript, and posting this transcript. Unix users: the "script" program is
probably the easiest way to make a transcript. This is a lot of work,
but it will save time.
