No, that would be rebooting the computer and hope it works

As long as he doesn't give up on figuring why reportbug fails it's not
so bad.

hmmm... well, again, I do appreciate the positive feedback regarding the bug
report that I've now filed. Unfortunately, I have to turn down your kind offers
to help me use reportbug, and risk a verdict of doing things the "Windows Way".


Best,
AA

Only I even come near perfection, so I'll let you off the hook.

This time...

But seriously, you *really* should endeavour to get reportbug
working. It's extraordinarily useful.
