    Hi Christian,

    I don't understand why you reassigned this bug to general. Surely, if you want
    to discuss this with debian-devel@ you can cc: the list. Reassigning the bug
    to general often achieves nothing (which cannot be achieved by cc:ing) while
    it tends to pile up the list of general bugs and get forgotten.

    Also it seems pretty clear to me that the behavior of this wishlist bug is
    either triggered by console-data or linux-2.6.


    I wonder if this is also not a bug, but a established feature (so wontfix),
    but I have given up text consoles years ago :-)


    regards,
    Holger

    Well, here it achieved getting soem discussion. For whatever reason,
    I'm unsure it would have happened with a simple CC.

    Anton seems to agree that the bug should be fixed.

    I'd like to hear more about other people as well. Another option would
    be to seek an advice from the Technical Comittee as I feel that
    changing a behaviour that is here for ages is not something one can
    decide alone.

    Particularly in the case of console-data where I always explained that
    I try to maintain the package in the best shape I can even though
    console stuff is not really something I'm very keen about.

    I have nothing against changing the behaviour of PrtScr but,
    certainly:

    - this can't be done *now*
    - this has to be discussed first.

    If it is confirmed that only console-data and console-setup are
    affected by this, I'm OK to reassign the bug to console-data (as Anton
    cloned it for c-s) but, still, that needs some consensus.
