in the release-documentation and perhaps the gnome-bluetooth-icons
should be removed from gnome-menu, since they are currently useless in a
BTW, if /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html is to be updated, in section
9.5.2 graveman should IMHO not be mentioned, since at least here it is
useless, crashing regularly with pointer-errors (reported to bugzilla
several weeks ago).
