I was washing _L_‘s hands in the bathroom when we had this exchange:

_L_: I’m cold, daddy.
Me: Where are you cold, _L_?
_L_: I’m cold here in the bathroom, daddy!

A 100% correct answer, yet totally useless. It could be straight
out of an IBM manual.

Bug? There is no bug!

So what do you do when distributions (Mandriva, Ubuntu, and Gentoo so far)
send out
security fixes for a non-problem?

Ignore it? Certainly an option.

Spam the security lists with “that’s not a problem”?
