I fully agree here: the manual should explain how to *use* gm, not how
to *troubleshoot* it. But it certainly should point to the relevant
entry in the faq when it is needed (example: when going through the
steps of the wizard, the manual should say "If you have a problem with
sound at that step, you'll find precise answers to common problems in
section <link>3.14</link> of the faq").
