A bug in two parts

I finally got round to going through the photos on my camera this morning – I still haven’t got round to putting my holiday (August holiday!) photos on Flickr so I thought this could be the way to spend a chilly Saturday morning.

F-spot error

F-spot error

As is obvious from the image, something went wrong. In fact two things went wrong:
1) The error message itself: an f-spot bug?
2) The dialog box is too wide to read the message or see the buttons: a GTK bug?

To report the bug I needed a screen shot which I then wanted to upload to my flickr acc

Another example of 1) and 2) above except that in this case it is not the error message that is too long but rather there is simply too much detail. Please do let me look for every possible version of an image file but there is almost no benefit, at this stage, of showing me the full list. Accuracy is not always useful.

I did a quick Google and really wasn’t sure where to report the bugs so I thought I would document them quickly here and trust that someone can tell me where I need to file these bugs or add my support to them being fixed.
