This is killer stuff guys!  Really nice work :)  You've captured
something above 90% of the X issues testers encountered during Fedora 11
campaign.  I've added a Category to this and similar pages to help me
find these things better.  Hopefully this helps others ... 


Are there any other suggested components to target next?  NetworkManager
and Packagekit were two that spring to mind as an active bug recipients.
Debugging pam issues could be interesting as well.

I'm trying to gather the most reported components from triageweb to get
more insight here ... any other thoughts?
