Ah...my bad...forgot about that one.  Sorry for going off.  Yeah, that's
odd.  It basically appeared as a one-liner for me in mutt.  I could open it
from mutt, but yeah, it was odd.  This is the first time I've seen this
though...stupid M$ LookOUT!

That might make sense.  Can we assume everyone has access to a browser and
will be willing to use if for bug reports?  I know it makes it a lot easier
for us as developers to track the bugs if they are reported there, but I'm
not sure that everyone is willing to do so.   Plus, many times people send
bug reports from the console during the LVM install process, and so may not
have easy access to a browser.  I know Heinz initially had some concern about
limiting file size on the list, so we'll have to get his opinion on this.
