Which is highly appreciated, but it happened *after* I reported these
issues, so it hardly counts as a heads up. That said, I did not mean to
state this request as a demand in any kind or form, nor was it directed
at just Akemi. It's a general request that if people are aware of
breakage in upcoming updates to report it to this list.

I think I set a good example by reporting the breakage in

The issue is a bit more severe than just breaking evolution. It also
breaks the gnome desktop by crashing gnome panels. Although I have no
explanation of the grub breakage that occurred after these updates on my
perhaps somewhat old and odd Sempron system I thought it might be
related. As I haven't seen anyone else reports such issues it might have
just been a fluke.

You are correct that I should have phrased my recommendation a bit less
generally, but then I am not stopping anyone from making their own
(informed) decisions.
