That is what you say.  And say again.  And again.  It is not useful!
I really wish you would back it up with a coherent statement as to
what is wrong.

I believe, on the basis of the various print problems I see, that qa testing
on the print dialogs is either not done at all or else done minimally. Prove 
me wrong by pointing me to a url where the print test procedures are that
are used to test the gnumeric print functions so I can convince myself
that the feature testing is comprehensive. Try doing a print to pdf file
twice in a row without changing the output file name and see if gnumeric
crashes when you do so. IT does 100% of the time on my system.

This is nearly insulting. 

I apologise. No offense was intended or even thought of.
This is a 100% repeatable problem on my system. If it doesn't
happen to you on your system, then it begins to look like an
OpenBSD-related problem.

The very first thing we probably tried as a 
result of your messages is try to print to pdf using the same name (and
differnet names). I have not been able to crash it once.

Since I am also supporting approximately 300 users of gnumeric for whom
printing is an essential part of gnumeric's use (since they typically
need to print their work to submit it) I also know that I ma not just

Having said that, I concur that filing bugzilla reports is the best way to
get the bugs fixed.

I now have a Bugzilla  account. 
I'm looking at the opening screen.
All I have to do now is learn how to use it :-)

My problem is that I don't have time to  file (much less 
learn how to file) bug reports while I am trying to work around print problems
as I attempt to meet real-time report deadlines. I would prefer to upgrade
to the most recent gnumeric and see if the print problems go away.
The question is how to do that without changing operating systems since
one of the disadvantages of using OpenBSD is that the packages are almost
always out-of-date.

Either you file bug reports or you live with the bugs. More likely
though the bugs you are seeing are either openBSD specific or specific
to your set-up.



I appreciate your work.
Please don't take anything I write as
an attack, either of you or gnumeric. 
I don't do that - ever.
I do get worked up when I get frustrated.
I have been trying to tone it down because
even my cats leave when I get upset.
