In this activity, you'll read real issue trackers / mailing list threads to understand a bug. 
+
Your task during this section is to read one of the following bug reports or mailing list threads, then explain it to your buddy. (Therefore, you'll need to choose a buddy!)
  
Your task is to pick one of the following two bugs and read the linked thread.  (Feel free to click through and read the links within the links!) Then, answer the questions listed below.
+
Choose with your buddy which one will do which (suggestion: the person on the left does the first one, and the person on the right picks the second one), then read it and explain! No need to be too careful in which one you pick.
