I bring this up again because the problem is still being reported in rawhide. 
This message does not get people's attention, explain the seriousness of the 
problem, or motivate people to report it. We need to change it to something 
worded more ominously.

Also, is there enough information in this message to diagnose the problem? Do 
we want to include more information in it?
