recheck? wtf should I? you waited 1 full release cycle before even making ANY notice on this effing report. attach files? I gave you the ******* link to the files, did you bother to check? no or else you would have seen them. If you or your team cannot update critical bugs reports on core tools then you or your team has no business working on a operating system. Do I care about this bug? not anymore as I do not use *buntu anymore as it has became a bloated cliché.

No, that is a pointer to a website without any information on any version or any architecture. Sorry for the late reply, but software included with ubuntu has a priority. I'm closing this report as invalid; please feel free to reopen if you still want to submit the missing information.
