Hi Bug Reporter,

why are you cross posting this to a support list, when a bug report has already been filed to the dolphin developers?

Up until now, this has been a conversation. I was getting feedback and offering information. I had anticipated continuing that two-way conversation because it has not ended. With all due respect, and recognizing that I am new to this list and need to understand the etiquette, I am in the middle of a debugging process someone asked me to start.

You do realise that cross-posting is frowned upon, and you already made a bug report,

I did not personally make that bug report and I was not initially aware it had been made. Apparently someone made it for me, which I appreciate.
so what is the point of sending this to the user support ML?

Already answered above.
This list here is meant for user support, and is the first step, where escalating to either a development list or filing a bug report is the eventual consequence of the support given here, not the other way round.

In my experience, the filing of a bug report is not "the end". People on this list had been asking me for additional information. As I understood it, I was to provide some gdb info. I'm in the middle of that. I still have Dolphin running under gdb and I did not want to kill that process until I got feedback from people who know more than I do.

This problem takes several days to begin manifesting, and I have been running Dolphin under gdb and I'm trying to continue that until I have given all the info needed. Starting it over will require several days for Dolpin to get to the point where the UI becomes very sluggish.

So please, do not crosspost or escalate the wrong way, it is really not helpful.

Regards, Myriam

PS: Top-posting on purpose, as I am just reacting to the repeated cross-posting you do on this list

I can tell you were not following the conversation in detail. Otherwise, I do not think you would have reacted this way at all to a conversation that was in process. However, this is not my list so I will do as I am told to do by the people who are participating in this conversation already. In particular, at what point should I end gdb?
