Please don't - my screen is already to narrow to display search results
(1400x1050 laptop display!). Please don't add an additional column.

If in doubt, read and
If your question is still unanswered, maybe one of those should be
extended ;-)

BTW: Maybe the section about YaST and Kernel bugs should be moved to
separate pages (Bugs:YaST and Bugs:Kernel)...

I guess this isn't a really problem - worst case is a "this is no bug in
$component - reassigning to ..." comment. Simply use the component that
looks best to you ;-)

No - the "problem" is that bugzilla automatically displays the next bug
in your search list. You have to click "go back to bug #..." manually.
While this can be a useful feature, it can also be confusing :-(

Hmm, is there an option to switch it on/off per user? Bugzilla experts?

There's a checkbox directly below the input field for your comment.
But I can confirm that many users forget to reset needinfo :-/

What do you propose as "more visible"? Font size 500%, blinking and
flashing? ;-))
