Yes, I know; and I absolutely agree - when reporting a bug, I make sure 
to test everything I can think of that I would do if I was the project 
developer. Actually, I like fixing UI problems myself, and I would do it 
if I could, but I'm not yet good enough to deal with things like this...

What I meant is, "it's there in Debian, it's not there in Mint; the only 
people who can find out exactly where it all went wrong is the Debian 
people". Also, the bug report page for Debian said something like, "if 
you're unsure, don't send the report upstream; maybe it's only there in 
Debian - we'll direct it upstream if we have to".

I'm extremely sorry, but it seems that I've provided some wrong 
information. I've just tested it again. The bug IS there in Linux Mint 
Debian Edition 2; however, it is NOT there in Linux Mint 17.3 . (I mixed 
up different Mint distros.) So the problem is upstream, anyway, and it's 
not with Caja - it's with something else that's different between Debian 
and Ubuntu.
