When I was asking you about these two files (how difficult it is attach 
instead of this bitching on the list?), I was not that much concerned 
with the configuration of your computer (although, it may be nice to see 
whether you haven't done something entirely stupid there) as much I was 
interested in what xorg thinks your hardware is, whether it isn't 
possible that some hardware failure happens, whatever. And of course, it 
was easier for me to use canned text which includes both of these files. 
Again, how difficult is it just to attach two files?

Now, to the whole idea of canned comments. If I had enough time to write 
nice novels about each bug, I would certainly did, and believe Dickens 
would envy the beauty of my prose. However, I am the only bugmaster for 
all Xorg/Gecko/Evolution/OpenOffice bugs (not dealing with each of these 
groups with same level of thoroughness) and I have to deal with hundreds 
of bug comments every day. If you want to have more beautiful comments in 
bugzilla, you are very welcome to contact me and help me bug triaging all 
those desktop bugs.
