I completely agree that can be the case.  Looking back at my statement I
can see how it can be mis-construed.  I didn't mean that the KDE users
weren't pulling their weight in debugging.  In participation I clearly
meant numbers of user and bugs filed, which also might be wrong.  That
is why I suggested looking at bugzilla.  Obviously the proper solution
to this isn't to discuss the holy trinity, but for the original poster
to file a bugzilla and get the issued resolved.
