I sent a mail to egcs-bugs@sourceware.cygnus.com for reporting a
possible bug in GCC and I got this response (I have removed the copy
of my mail to egcs-bugs@sourceware.cygnus.com from the end of the
included message).  It's confusing!

(1) Has my message reached egcs-bugs@sourceware.cygnus.com?
(2) What else do I need to do?
(3) I am not interested in subscribing to gcc related mailing lists.
