MySQL used to have a mandatory report list for reporting this kind of
thing. One had to fill out a multitude of details before it would be
considered. Though since becoming an LDAP convert, I've little to do
with MySQL.

Basically I agree entirely. On other lists I refuse to answer any
questions without people having supplied at least:

OS, OS version, possibly Linux distro
Utility, utility version
configuration details
log details
