I'm not quite sure who you think you're talking to, since this isn't the
kernel mailing list. Kernel developers aren't generally to be found on
-test-list. It is a sensible place to post about problems, but your
unnecessarily antagonistic attitude just seems even sillier if you know
that the 'you' to whom you're trying to be so mean aren't even reading
this. =)

Well, actually, it's safer to break kernel packages than many other
bits, since you always have the option to boot back to another kernel.
But yes, it would be nice to avoid this kind of thing. That kind of
attitude isn't going to get you very far in the quest to get developers
to listen reasonably to what you have to say, though.

You're the second person to point that out today just on this list, and
it's also been multiply reported to the forum. If I wished to take your
attitude, I could say 'my god, you really should get your crap together
enough to check the list archives before posting yet another report of
an already-well-known problem without adding any useful data'. =)

strangely, with all these reports, no-one's actually filed a bug yet.
That might be a good idea.
