A problem report is pretty much a request for help (or at least a
request that a bug be fixed).  There's nothing wrong with that, we
NEED problem reports, however we need constructive problem reports in
order to fix the bug if one exists.

For example, a problem much like what the OP reported was fixed a few
days ago in CVS.  If he's REALLY running the HEAD branch then there's
something still that needs looking in to.  If instead, he's running
HEAD as of a week ago then reporting a problem that's already been
fixed is nothing but wasting a developers time.
