This reminds me: Several years ago (say 2003 \pm 2 years) there seemed to have been some kind of upgrade of the database software, and after that several replies I had written were no longer there. That is, they used to be visible in the web page generated for a particular bug number, but afterwards they aren't included. Indeed, I get the feeling that you seldom *see* more than the original report for any bug. This is BAD. > * Subject? > I have seen > Re: / > and > Re: /: > * Are there delays in the processing of mails send to the > bug database regarding answers (cronjob, moderation, ...)? > > For bug latex/3540 there are workarounds: Easier workaround, which also solves a bunch of other problems in this area:    \usepackage{xdoc2} This might even have been entered into the database at some time, though I think it must have been for an older bug than latex/3540.
