Well, possibly because I haven't upgraded my users' workstations, because
they're extremely dependent on their graphics, and I have to negotiate
with them when they're not trying to get results for a meeting or paper

But the question is, if the kernel's not upgraded, why does the ABRT even
happen - should that *not* have been upgraded, if the kernel wasn't?
