bug reports for MATE 1.10 in sid/testing

Just wait until all packages are uploaded, please. There is currently a mix of 1.8 and 1.10 packages in unstable/testing with possibly many things not working properly.

We're currently at the point where the chest is open during heart surgery, so telling us the patient is currently not doing too well is not really helpful, we know that. I use MATE extensively myself so I notice when stuff breaks. I just can't just have bug reports filed for every single issue when I can't be sure it won't go away with the next pending upload anyway.

Furthermore, there are also many other things broken in unstable right now due to the libstdc++6 transition and a MATE dialog crashing is probably your least problem. Thus, unless you know how to handle these issues yourself or can live with them, please don't use Debian unstable/testing at the moment.

And please just bear with me until all packages are updated. I am currently at CCCamp and will attend DebConf from Saturday on where I will have fast internet and lots of time for working on it.

It's also currently unbearibly hot in Germany so people a little lethargic.

Thank you for being patient!
